Stich den Buben

single vineyard in the two municipalities of Steinbach and Umweg (Ortenau area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. The name goes back to those twelve "Steckhaufen" (30 ares) of vines that Margrave Karl von Baden I. (1427-1475) gave in fief to his master chef Hans Stich den Buben in 1474 in exchange for his "getruwen willigen Dienste". The site was greatly expanded in the course of land consolidation in 1971. The south-southeast to west-facing vineyards with slopes of up to 50% cover 82 hectares of vineyards. The deep soils of weathered porphyry and granite with clay and sand are of volcanic origin. The best area is considered to be the original, historic Gewann. The Riesling variety is cultivated here in particular. Members of the Baden-Baden Winegrowers' Cooperative, for example, as well as the Fendt Wine Family (Steinbach), Nägelsförst (Umweg) and Nieger Sven (Umweg) wineries have shares in the site.
