Grain Hübel

Single location in the community Deidesheim (area Mittelhaardt-German Wine Route) in the German wine-growing region palatinate, It was first mentioned in 1412 as a vineyard "on the Gryne" documentary. The name most likely refers to the ground. Either it is derived from "Grain", an old name for washed-out soil, or "Grien" for a soil covered with gravel and small stones. The "Hübel" stands for "hill". The location had already at the beginning of the 19th century an excellent reputation and was the well-known winemaker Johann Philipp Bronner (1792-1864) described as the best Deidesheimer situation. The earlier items Upper Grain, Grain Chaussee, Grainhübel and lower Grain were at the Land Consolidation summarized in 1971 under the current name. The south-facing vineyard in 110 to 150 meters above sea level covers nearly six hectares of vineyards on with partially interspersed with clay and lime Buntsandstein weathering soil. Here is mainly the variety Riesling cultivated. Shares in the situation have for example the wineries Bassermann-Jordan. Kimich. Siben and Winery of Winning,
