The vineyard was first mentioned in a document in 1675. It is situated at an altitude of 159 to 173 metres above sea level with a slope of up to 11 degrees and covers 52 hectares of vineyards, of which only about three hectares are planted. The soils consist of lime-free gravel with portions of quartz and silex ( flint). These are excellent conditions for the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety cultivated here. The vineyard is solely owned by the Kollwentz winery.
The vineyard lies within the Weißes Kreuz vineyard. The vineyard, which is mainly north-facing, lies at an altitude of 184 to 206 metres above sea level with a slope of up to 8 degrees and comprises 14 hectares of vineyards.
Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.Thomas Götz
