The VDP.GROSSE LAGE® BASSGEIGE LEH is a parcel within the Bassgeige vineyard of Oberbergen / Kaiserstuhl. It lies at 240 to 280 metres above sea level and faces south. The soil is calcareous loess and volcanic soil. VDP.Estate Franz Keller cultivates Weissburgunder here. History: The name “Bassgeige” stems from the original shape of this vineyard, which resembled a double bass. Since the Flurbereinigung (land consolidation) of 1971, this shape is no longer discernable. The name “Leh” refers to a tumulus grave from the Hallstatt culture in the Early Iron Age Europe around 800 B.C., which documents the early settlers of this region.
