Heee-Haaw: Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Silvaner from the Donkey Trail
So called donkey trails often led to a mill and were only wide enough for a donkey carrying a bag to walk on. There are still mill buildings in Appenheim today, some of them with restaurants. This single vineyard was first mentioned in 1375. Donkeys are rarely seen there today, but ambitious winegrowers with tractors or jeeps. The subsoil is a limestone base with a light loess-loam soil on top. Rieslings, Pinot Blanc and Silvaner/Sylvaner grow on the southern slope. They stand for fruitiness and minerality, volume and creaminess. These wines have depth and power.
