Gensinger Goldberg

Treasure? Value? Appreciation for Riesling and Chardonnay

The naming of a field with this name rarely refers to the precious metal gold, but is rather an expression of general appreciation. This is also the case here, in Gensingen. Sand, clay and heavy lime marl characterise this site. There is a calm and warm microclimate, due to the wind shadow at the foot of the Kieselberg. Perfect for Chardonnay and Riesling.
