Single vineyard in the municipality of Winningen (Burg Cochem area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. The name allegedly goes back to owls, which are said to have nested here in former times. The south to west facing vineyards at an altitude of 75 to 210 meters above sea level with a slope of 50 to 70% cover 15 hectares of vineyards. The cultivation of the extreme steep sl opes is only possible by means of monorack tracks. The main grape variety cultivated here is Riesling, which is also used to produce high quality wines such as Trockenbeerenauslesen and Eiswein. The vines are mainly cultivated in the Moselpfahl, Trierer Rad and Vertiko styles. The sandy soils consist of blue-grey slate with partly clayey sediments and a high rock content.
