Oelsberg

Single location in the municipality of Oberwesel in the German Mittelrhein growing region. The south-facing vineyard at an altitude of 70 to 120 metres above sea level with a 60 to 70% slope, comprises six hectares of vineyards. The soil consists of slate weathering with layers of red sandstone and loess. The Rhine flows straight towards the Oelsberg over a length of six kilometres, which creates a particularly favourable angle of incidence for the sun and an extreme intensity of the light reflections. Riesling is cultivated here above all. The Dr. Kauer and Lanius-Knab wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
