Single location in the municipality of Walluf in the German Rheingau wine growing region. At the foot of the hill are old mills, in which in former times fabrics were tumbled into felt. This is where the name comes from. The southwest-facing vineyards are situated on the southern slopes of the Taunus foothills at an altitude of 120 to 150 metres above sea level with a gradient of 10 to 20% and comprise 19 hectares of vineyards. The rock-poor soils consist of loess loam on a gravelly subsoil with a high proportion of fine soil. The hillside location protects the vines from cold winds from the Taunus Mountains. The proximity to the Rhine provides an ideal climate. The Riesling and Spätburgunder(Pinot Noir) varieties in particular are cultivated here. The Becker Hans-Josef and Toni Jost Hahnenhof wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
