single vineyard in the municipality of Nierstein in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The name (Pater = monk) goes back to a former monastery. The west-facing vineyards with a slope of up to 60% cover 147 hectares of vineyards in gently rolling formations. They have soils of loess, clayey loam and marl. The varieties Riesling, Silvaner, Scheurebe, Müller-Thurgau and Pinot Noir are cultivated here. The wineries Bacchushof, Domhof Baumann, Huff Fritz Ekkehard, Louis Guntrum, Raddeck Stefan, Schneider Georg Albrecht, Seebrich and Strub Walter, 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
