Single location in the municipality of Oestrich in the German Rheingau wine growing region. There are three versions for the origin of the name. Firstly, the name could be derived from a mountain back which bordered on the original location of Lenchen and secondly, in the Oestrich dialect many words are diminished with "sch". Thus a small fief is a fiefman, from which the present spelling Lenchen could have developed. According to the third version the name is derived from the old name "Landflechterbrunnen". By including neighbouring layers a strong enlargement resulted. The relatively flat vineyards facing south at an altitude of 120 to 150 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 3 to 15% comprise 120 hectares of vineyards.
