single vineyard in the municipality of Wiltingen (Saar area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. It was only planted in the early 1920s, and some of the vines still date from that time. The name is possibly derived from an adjacent gorge (graben). The south-facing vineyard covers nine hectares of vines. The Devonian slate soils are criss-crossed by countless veins of water, which emerge at the foot as small springs. For this reason, there is an optimal water supply. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated, in part ungrafted. The Nik Weis - St. Urbans-Hof, Reinert, Resch Hans and Weinhof Herrenberg wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
