The VDP.GROSSE LAGE® ALTENBERG stretches majestically along the Saar overlooking a bend in the river. The south-southeast exposition collects plenty of sunlight, which is enhanced by warm summer thermals and the forested hilltop that shields from north and west winds. The soil is predominantly green-grey slate and weathered Rotliegend. The GL ALTENBERG lies at 250 metres a.s.l. at a very steep 55 to 89 percent gradient. Predominantly Riesling grows here.
