UHLEN BLAUFÜSSER LAY | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®, Winningen | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®



Because differing types of slate distinguish the parcels of the Uhlen vineyard, the VDP decided to classify them into four different VDP.GROSSE LAGE® vineyards. One of these is the VDP.GROSSE LAGE® BLAUFÜSSER LAY*. The slate here is blue-grey and clayey and lends wines a unique character. The dark slate and terrace walls of this southwest-facing parcel store the warmth of the day and radiate it into the vines at night. Cultivation of this extremely steep 100 to 150 % (45 to 56°) slope would not be possible without small terraces. The dry stone walls were built and continue to be maintained without the use of mortar. Vintners are proud that these vineyard terrace walls provide a habitat for rare animals like European green lizards and Apollo butterflies.
