UHLEN LAUBACH | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®, Winningen | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®



One vineyard, three geologies. Because four different slate types are found in the breathtakingly steep Uhlen vineyard, it has been classified into four different vineyard parcels. Like the GL UHLEN, the soil of VDP.GROSSE LAGE® UHLEN LAUBACH* is grey slate with calcareous, fossil-rich interstratifications. The slate in this south to southwest facing site collects warmth well. It would be impossible to cultivate this extremely steep 100 to 150 % (45 to 56 °) slope without terraces. The dry stone walls were built and continue to be maintained without the use of mortar, which allows them to provide a habitat for rare animals like European green lizards. Vintners are also quite proud of the Apollo butterflies that thrive here.
