Goldloch

Single location in the community Dorsheim in the German growing area Near, It was first mentioned in documents in 1756 under the name "Am Loch", today's name with the addition "gold" was introduced only in 1819. The underlying Flurname can be interpreted in triplicate: 1. At this point gold was supposedly or really found; 2. an ironic name for the mining of ore in the Dorsheim mountain (gold sought and copper ore found); 3. The winemakers earned a lot of gold (money) with the wines from this excellent location. The gold hole connects directly to the single layer Dorsheimer Pittermännchen at. The exactly south-oriented and partly very steep terraced Vineyards at 210 to 290 meters above sea level with 45 to 55% slope cover 10.5 hectares of vineyards on the north side of the Trollbachtal. The soil consists of stony-grusigem Gehängelehm on rocky conglomerates of the Permian with a thin layer of clay and a high content of pebbles. Here is only the variety Riesling cultivated. A share in the situation, for example, have the wineries Joh. Bapt. shepherd. Kruger-Rumpf. Pieroth. Schlossgut Diel and Schömehl,
