VINEYARD Laubenheimer Krone
PRODUCER The LÖHRER BERG (= empty mountain) in Langenlonsheim is one of the oldest Riesling vineyards in the Nahe. In 1688 Elector Philip William of the Palatinate ordered the planting of Riesling here to the exclusion of all other grape varieties. Numerous natural springs nourish and enhance the loamy, gravel-laden soil and help make it exceptionally fertile. The vines, in place for more than 40 years already, produce juicy and apple-laced Rieslings that often develop subtle earthy notes with a bit of age.
