Top slope with middle-grounded, stony quartzweathering soil and slate.

Merler Klosterberg

Deep, finebottom rich soil, on which our grape varieties Kerner, Bacchus and Müller-Thurgau thrieve very good, because they need more watery soil than the Riesling vine. Our red wines also grow on finebottom rich soil in the slope “Zeller Marienburger”.
