Wolf Cave

Single location in the municipality of Bacharach (Loreley area) in the German Mittelrhein growing region. It lies in the Steeger side valley of the Rhine, which is crossed by the Münzbach. To the east is the single vineyard Posten. The name "Wolfshelde", first mentioned in 1335, probably derives from a former owner called "Wolf". The south-southeast facing vineyards at an altitude of 100 to 200 metres above sea level with a gradient of 50 to 60% comprise 20 hectares of vineyards. The Wolfshöhle is separated from the adjacent vineyard St. Jost (Steeg) by the Mönchsrinne (a stream). The soils consist of medium-heavy clay slate weathering and crystalline slate (Hunsrück slate). Riesling is cultivated here above all. The vineyards Bastian Friedrich, Dr. Kauer and Ratzenberger, for example, have shares in the site.
