Zornheimer Vogelsang

Made arable by man or sung by birds

Two possible interpretations are circulating: Either the site got its name from an old slash-and-burn area - by singeing, lightly burning a surface for cultivation (German: sengen). Or it actually refers to the numerous birds that nest there. In this sunny vineyard, vines grow on very chalky, stony and sandy loam soil. The Pinot Noir from the limestone is particularly prized. And while tasting the wines from the "Zornheimer Vogelsang" you are welcome to sing and whistle.
