Roter Berg

single vineyard in the municipality of Schozach (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German growing region of Württemberg. The south to south-southeast facing vineyards slope 280 metres above sea level with slopes of up to 45% and cover 15 hectares of vineyards. Thermal air currents cause strong warming during the day and strong cooling at night. These conditions result in a special microclimate. The soils consist of the red loam that gives the vineyard its name, gypsum keuper, variegated marl and layers of shell limestone. Riesling and Pinot Noir are the main varieties cultivated here. The vineyard has been the sole property of the Graf von Bentzel Sturmfeder estate since the end of the 19th century.
