Heerkretz

Single location in the communities of Neu-Bamberg and Siefersheim (area Bingen ) in the German growing area Rheinhessen, The name refers to the difficult workability of the floor, because "Kretz" is derived from "scratching". The part "Heer" comes from an old army road in the valley at the foot of the location. The south and southeast-facing vineyards at 160 to 280 meters above sea level with 20 to 60% slope cover 56 hectares of vineyards. The soils, which are somewhat different due to their size, consist of quartz porphyry, porphyry weathering and solidified sea sand with thick shell limestone deposits, some of them fine earth and clay, as well as bedrock and underground Rotliegendem, The very rugged vine slope with many boiler layers is well protected from cold east and west winds. At the foot of the location springs spring, which lead to a favorable water balance for the vines. Here are mainly the varieties Riesling. Sylvaner and Pinot Noir ( Pinot Noir ) cultivated. The vineyards, for example, have a share in the situation Steitz Christian and Wagner-Stempel,
