Brotwasser

Single location in the municipality of Stetten (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German growing region Wuerttemberg, The unusual name goes back to a lady-in-waiting residing in Stetten in the 17th century. With List, she hid her pronounced preference for wine. At that time it was common to soften the dried bread with a little water. Said lady left her mug with hers instead of water favorite wine fill up. However, this was not hidden for long and so the vineyard from which the wine came was given its name. The southwest-facing vineyard with a slope of 15 to 50% covers almost three hectares of vineyards on reed sandstone and Keuper. The terraced rows of vines lie below the Yburg ruins, which can be seen from afar. Only the Riesling is grown here. The location was acquired by the Württemberg family in 1666 and is the sole property of the winery Duke of Württemberg,
