Long piece

Single location in the municipality of Eltville-Rauenthal in the German Rheingau growing region. It was already mentioned in documents in the 15th century as "Langenstuck", whereby the name is derived from the elongated shape of the terrain. The site begins at the western foot of the Rauenthal mountain and encloses the two individual sites Baiken and Gehrn in several terraces. The south-west-facing vineyards, with a gradient of 10 to 35%, comprise 26 hectares of cultivated vines. The soils consist mainly of phyllite rock with volcanic content, as well as loess, clay and marl, which ensure a good water supply even in dry years. The varieties cultivated here are mainly Riesling andPinot Noir (Spätburgunder). The Albus, H. J. Ernst and Laquai Paul vineyards, for example, have a share in the site. There is another single vineyard called Langenstück in the Rheingau community of Walluf.
