Schloss Schwabsburg

single vineyard in the municipality of Nierstein (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. It is part of the so-called "Red Slope" within the Rhine front and adjoins the single vineyard Orbel. The name refers to the castle, built in the 12th century, which now exists only as a ruin. The stony and shallow soils consist of red clay slate (Rotliegendes). The Riesling variety is cultivated here. The Huff Fritz Ekkehard and Huff Georg Gustav wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
