single vineyard in the municipality of Walluf in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. At the foot are old mills where fabrics used to be milled into felt. This is also 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 slope of 10 to 20% and cover 19 hectares of vineyards. The low-stone soils consist of loess loam on gravelly subsoil with a high proportion of fine earth. The slope protects the vines from cold winds from the Taunus. The proximity to the Rhine provides an ideal climate. The Riesling and Pinot Noir varieties are cultivated here. The Becker Hans-Josef and Toni Jost Hahnenhof wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".Prof. Dr. Walter Kutscher
