Westhofener Aulerde

Once clay for potters, today premium wines for connoisseurs

Once again the Middle High German: "Ule" means pot. The site was first mentioned in a document in 1382 with the name "an Ule erden". Why pot? Because potters found clay there. Today, the clay marl should stay where it is. And that is below the vines! Just as well as loess and limestone. Top Rieslings grow here: ripe aromas and fine exoticism on the nose; creamy and opulent on the palate. Due to the southern exposure, the grapes ripen early. Hikers enjoy the multitude of vineyard houses.

The dear lady, pilgrims and west winds

In the Middle Ages, on a high plateau about 215 metres above sea level, a Gothic Church of Our Lady actually stood here, together with a hospital courtyard for feeding pilgrims. It was built by the Lords of Dalberg. The location was given the name "in unser lieben frauen padt" in 1524 and "am Liebfrauenberg" in 1737. Today, the foundations still rest under the vines. The "Mariensäule", a monument in the middle of the vineyard, and the name of the single vineyard still remind us of the once highly revered site. The poor soil is characterised by heavy lime marl, with a massive lime reef resting in the subsoil. Cool westerly winds cause the grapes to ripen late. A top site for salty, mineral and complex Rieslings.
