Ohlenberg

Single location in the municipality of Boppard in the German Mittelrhein growing region. It is a part of the vineyard Bopparder Hamm, which is also a district of the same name of Boppard. The foot of the Ohlenberg slope is only about 100 metres from the banks of the Rhine. The name comes from the formerly important fishing industry when there was a large occurrence of salmon and Rhine eels (Ohl = eel). To the west of this is the Feuerlay site, above the Weingrube site. The vineyard, which faces south to south-southwest at an altitude of 70 to 160 metres above sea level, comprises eight hectares of vines on clay slate weathered soil with sandstone. With a gradient of 20 to 65% (33°), the site is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany. The Riesling variety in particular is cultivated here. The Königshof, Müller Matthias, Perll August and Weingart Florian wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
