BERG KAISERSTEINFELS, Rüdesheim am Rhein | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®



The impressive and sun pampered, south facing slope of the VDP.GROSSE LAGE® BERG KAISERSTEINFELS rises prominently above the bend in the Rhine at Rüdesheim. The Nahe empties into the Rhine directly opposite this partially terraced vineyard. At 5 to 35 percent gradient, the GL is steep to very steep. The soil of the 8.2 hectares is meagre and rocky; one finds quartzite slate rubble and in some areas there is a small share of red slate interstratification. The well drained soil is prone to dryness. The GL BERG KAISERSTEINFELS lies at 280 metres a.s.l. Predominantly Riesling grows here. History: The name stems from the bare, rocky soil structure and from Emperor Charles the Great (Kaiser der Große) who had the grape variety Orléans planted here.
