Saarsteiner Castle

Single vineyard in the municipality of Serrig (Saar area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. In 1828, the head forester Ebenteuer had a slope of the Kammerforst on the right bank of the Saar, which was called Priommenberg at that time, cleared and planted as a vineyard. Later, the Hansen family from Trier acquired the property and founded a winery. In 1956, the property was sold to Dieter Ebert. The vineyard, which is 200 to 250 meters above sea level and has a slope of 30 to 60%, turns to the west for the most part and to the south-southeast for the most part in a conical curve. The part planted in 1943 with rootless Rieslings is considered the best parcel. The soil consists of greywacke, blue Devonian slate weathering and brown earth with partly hanging loam and reddish inclusions in the lower area. Especially in the lower part, the autumn mists rising from the Saar promote botrytis and thus the production of noble sweet wines. Mainly Riesling is cultivated here. The site is solely owned by Saarstein Castle
