Goldloch

Single location in the municipality of Dorsheim in the German growing region Near, It was first mentioned in a document in 1756 under the name "Am Loch", the current name with the addition "Gold" was only introduced in 1819. The underlying Flurname can be interpreted in three ways: 1. Gold was allegedly or really found here; 2. an ironic term for ore mining in Dorsheimer Berg (gold sought and copper ore found); 3. The winegrowers made a lot of gold (money) from the excellent location. The gold hole is immediately adjacent to the Dorsheimer individual location Pittermännchen on. The south facing and sometimes 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 Trollbach valley. The floor is made of stony-creepy hammock on rocky conglomerates of the Permian with a thin layer of clay and a high proportion of pebbles. Only the variety is used here Riesling cultured. The wineries, for example, have a share in the location Joh. Bapt. shepherd. Kruger-Rumpf. Pieroth. Schlossgut Diel and Schömehl,
