Single location in the municipality of Oestrich in the German growing region Rheingau, There are three versions for the origin of the name. On the one hand, the name could be derived from a mountain backrest that bordered on the original Lenchens location, and on the other hand, many words in the Oestrich dialect are reduced to “sch”. So a small fief is a fief, from which today's spelling Lenchen could have developed. According to the third version, the name derives from the old name "Landflechterbrunnen". Including neighboring locations resulted in a large enlargement. The relatively flat south-facing vineyards at 120 to 150 meters above sea level with 3 to 15% slope cover 120 hectares of vineyards.
