Gypsum marl and loes provide the vines with good water availability. This pale soil and reflects the sunlight back into the vines. History: The Romans were the first to discover the potential of the Kapellenberg for wine cultivation. The site gets its name from the St. Michael Chapel that was built there in 1748.
