single vineyard in the municipalities of Dienheim and Uelversheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The Romans were already aware of the fertility and built a fort there. It is an old table estate. The table estates were intended for the upkeep of the noble landlord. The vineyards, which face east to southeast and have slopes of 10 to 20%, cover 90 hectares of vines. The soils consist of deep loess and clayey to sandy loam with limestone rock underneath and humus on top. They have an excellent water storage capacity. Riesling is the main grape grown here. The Bunn Lisa, Dr. Becker brothers, the Protestant Church of Hesse and Nassau, Kissinger, Neumer Jakob and Rappenhof wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
