Saint Nicholas

Single location in the municipality of Mittelheim in the German Rheingau wine growing region. It is named after an old statue of St. Nicholas made of sandstone, which stands at the upper edge together with the winegrower patron Urban of the vineyard, which is owned by the church. The south- to south-west-facing vineyards are situated at an altitude of 80 to 130 metres above sea level with up to 16% slope inclination and comprise almost 40 hectares of vineyards. The Rhine, only 150 metres away, has a warming influence. The soils consist of deep, calcareous loess, which is partly interspersed with gravel. The varieties cultivated here are mainly Riesling andPinot Noir (Spätburgunder). The vineyards Brueder Eser, Dr. Corvers-Kauter, F.B. Schönleber and Kühn Peter Jakob, for example, have a share in the site.
