Rieslings at lofty heights and with chalky soil
With up to 280 metres above sea level, this site is one of the highest in Rheinhessen. It also faces east/northeast - a highly interesting site in the wake of climate change. On heavy clay marl "Pelosol" soils with fine limestone inlay, mainly Rieslings thrive here. Cool evening winds are ideal for the "grande dame" of grape varieties. Wines with a distinctive acidity and minerality, depth and elegance are produced. The name "Klopp" first appeared in documents in 1537. The name goes back to the Middle High German word "klupf", which means hilltop.
