single vineyard in the municipality of Landau-Godramstein (Südliche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The south-facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 5 to 22% cover 430 hectares of vineyards. The sandy loam soils of the site, which is inhomogeneous due to its huge size, are interspersed with varying proportions of limestone and shell limestone. The so-called "Snake's Whistle" is considered the best parcel. Burgundy varieties such as Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, for which the chalky plots are particularly suitable, are cultivated here. Other varieties include Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Dornfelder and Silvaner. The Argus Peter, Emil Bauer & Söhne, Fader Kastanienhof, Feitig-Richter, Münzberg, Ökonomierat Rebholz, acid Heiner and Schneider Eugen wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.Hans-Georg Schwarz
