single vineyard in the municipality of Geisenheim in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name derives from the fact that this path was used by the monks of the two monasteries Johannisberg and Eibingen. This path was already mentioned in 1356. The south-facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 10 to 30% cover around 100 hectares of vineyards, but only 80 hectares of these are planted. The subsoil consists of Taunus quartzite overlain by tertiary loess and marl. The two varieties Riesling and Pinot Blanc are mainly cultivated here. The Freimuth Alexander, George, Jung Jakob and Klosterweingut Abtei St. Hildegard wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
