Saarsteiner Castle

Single location in the municipality of Serrig (Saar area) in the German Moselle growing region. In 1828 the head forester Ebenteuer had a slope of the chamber forest on the right bank of the Saar, then called Priommenberg, cleared and planted as a vineyard. Later, the Hansen family from Trier acquired the estate and founded a winery. In 1956 the property was sold to Dieter Ebert. The vineyard, which is partially facing west and mostly in a conical vaulting to the south-southeast, at an altitude of 200 to 250 meters above sea level with a slope gradient of 30 to 60%, comprises almost nine hectares of vineyards. The part of the vineyard planted in 1943 with Rieslings with true roots is considered the best plot. The soil consists of graywacke, blue-colored Devonian slate weathering and brown earth with partly suspended loam and reddish inclusions in the lower area. Especially in the lower part the autumn fog rising from the Saar promotes botrytis and thus the production of noble sweet wines. Here mainly Riesling is cultivated. The vineyard is in the exclusive possession of Saarstein Castle.
