Schloss Saarsteiner

single vineyard in the municipality of Serrig (Saar area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. In 1828, the head forester Ebenteuer had a slope of the Kammerforst on the right bank of the Saar, which was then called Priommenberg, cleared and planted as a vineyard. Later, the Hansen family from Trier acquired the property and founded a vineyard. In 1956, the property was sold to Dieter Ebert. The vineyard, which is 200 to 250 metres above sea level and has a slope of 30 to 60%, turns or faces west for the most part and south-southeast for the most part in a cone-shaped curve and covers almost nine hectares of vineyards. The part planted in 1943 with ungrafted Rieslings is considered the best parcel. The soil consists of greywacke, blue-coloured 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. Riesling is mainly cultivated here. The site is solely owned by Saarstein Castle.
