FELSENBERG, Schloßböckelheim | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®



The VDP.GROSSE LAGE® FELSENBERG lies in one of the most spectacular parts of the Nahe. The south-facing slope is nearly black with melaphyre volcanic rock (rhyolite) and rises with a 50-60 percent gradient up to a belt of rock that protects the GL FELSENBERG from fall winds. The soil contains abundant rubble from the eroding rock belt and is loose and well-aerated. The soil’s rapid warming properties work together with its well-protected location to promote early vegetation and to prolong the ripening period. The high rock content ensures good drainage. The vineyard soil also includes porphyry, stony-gritty loam, and fine earth. The GL FELSENBERG is 11 hectares in size and lies between 130 and 200 metres a.s.l.
