St. Jost

single vineyard in the municipality of Steeg in the valley of the Münzbach at a distance of about 1.5 kilometres from the Rhine in the German wine-growing region of the Middle Rhine. The name goes back to the former chapel dedicated to St. Jodocus of Aquitaine (620-669) in the churchyard between Bacharach and Steeg. The south-facing vineyards at an altitude of 120 to 220 metres above sea level with a slope of 50 to 60% cover more than eight hectares of vineyards on medium-heavy weathered clay slate soil (Hunsrück slate) covered with a layer of pastel-coloured drifting sand. Riesling is the main grape grown here. The Bastian Friedrich and Ratzenberger wineries, for example, have shares in the site.

In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".
