KršuterbergIn Walporzheim, the wide, lower Ahr valley ends with the consolidated Neuenahr and Ahrweiler vineyards. The slopes become increasingly steeper and are replaced by striking terraces, the basis for one of the Ahr’s most noble vineyard site’s ancient reputation.
The site’s name Kräuterberg allegedly stems from the Romans, who used the advantageous micro climate to grow Mediterranean herbs together with vines.
The combination of stony, gritty loam of weathered slate and Greywacke, the incline and ideal positioning towards the sun creates here, like in the Kräuterberg site, a nearly Mediterranean micro climate. As a result, the end products are intensively aromatic, deep wines with a typical spice aroma and great minerality that promise great storage potential.
