KIRCHENSTÜCK, Forst an der Weinstr. | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®

A particularly unique microclimate distinguishes the VDP.GROSSE LAGE® KIRCHENSTÜCK. The site is directly adjacent to the Forster Church (Kirche is German for church) and is surrounded by a knee-high sandstone wall. The warmth radiated from these constructions benefits the vines. They also direct airflow into the vineyard creating a warm, dry air current that drives out moisture and cold in the evening. The east to southeast-facing vineyard is located at 120 to 140 metres a.s.l. and has a gentle 5 to 10 % slope gradient. The soils of the GL KIRCHENSTÜCK are diverse and vary from basalt and sandstone to limestone rubble and clay with a thick layer of clay in the middle section and a water-storing limestone plate two metres under the surface.
