Ryolite on a gentle to steep slope
A wooded vineyard slope, sheltered from the wind by the Siefersheimer Horn in the west. The vineyard was first documented in 1532 with the name "in der hellen". “Hölle” refers to a gentle slope, a widespread field name in west-central Germany. With a gradient of up to 30 percent, one can certainly speak of a steep slope here in some places. Rhyolite, a magnetic rock, makes the wines unique. Riesling and Silvaner make the soil particularly palatable. The vineyard borders the Appelbach stream and the hiking trail “Märchenpfad” (engl. fairytale path) that runs along it. The coastal path circles the single vineyard.
