Teufelskeller

Single location in the municipality of Randersacker (Maindreieck area) in the German growing region of Franken. The name has no religious background, but derives from the patrician family Teufel, who lived in Randesracker and were generous supporters of the Bürgerspital in the 14th century. The addition "cellar" is derived from "throat", an outdated term for an area cut into the ground. The site extends from the Alandsgrund in the west in a southeasterly direction to the Teufelskellergraben. Here it almost makes a 90-degree bend in a north-easterly direction. At the upper end of the trench it changes to the Pfülben site. The vineyards with a slope gradient of 30 to 60% comprise 32 hectares of vineyards on mineral-rich shell limestone soil, reddish in colour due to iron oxide inclusions. The Hohbug (also known as Hobug or Hoher Bug) on the central impact slope is considered privileged. The Riesling and Silvaner varieties are mainly grown here. Shares in the vineyard are, for example, held by the wineries Arnold Wilhelm, Bürgerspital, Göbel Martin, Juliusspital, Schmitts Kinder and Stahl Albrecht.
