Plauelrain

Single location in the municipality of Durbach (Ortenau area) in the German Baden growing region. The historical location covered only 17 hectares of vineyard area and represents the fillet piece. During the land consolidation in 1971, an expansion to the current extent took place. The vineyards, which face south to south-south-east (best plots) and east to west-south-west, are situated at an altitude of 200 to 320 metres above sea level and have a slope of 40 to 85% (best plots) and 20 to 60% inclination and cover 190 hectares of vineyard area. They are protected by a forest edge against cold north winds. The granite weathered soils, with fine soil interspersed with sand and stones, are in places very shallow with rock at a depth of 40 centimetres. There are even pure rock islands. The varieties Klingelberger (Riesling), Scheurebe, Clevner (Traminer), Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir are cultivated here. Members of the Durbacher Winzergenossenschaft, for example, as well as the Laible Andreas and Männle Heinrich wineries have shares in the vineyard.
