Mandelstein

single vineyard in the municipality of Boppard in the German wine-growing region of the Middle Rhine. The name is probably due to the original growth of pine trees on the mountain (mhd. Mandel = pine). It is part of the Bopparder Hamm vineyard, which is also a district of Boppard with the same name. To the east of it is the Feuerlay vineyard, above it the Weingrube vineyard. The foot of the slope is only 50 to 80 metres from the Rhine. The south to south-southeast facing vineyards lie at an altitude of 70 to 150 metres above sea level and cover 11 hectares on greenish clay-slate weathered soil. With a slope of up to 70% (35°), the site is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany and also in Europe. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. The Didinger, Heilig Grab, Königshof, Müller Matthias and Perll August wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
