Winklerberg

Single location in the municipality Ihringen (area Kaiserstuhl) in the German growing area to bathe, The Winklerberg forms the southern foothills of the Kaiserstuhl. Great merit in the cultivation of this acquired the Ihringer physician Ernst Georg Lydtin. In 1813, he acquired part of a former dolorite quarry and planted vineyards. In the course of time was further cleared and the area partially secured with up to eight meters high retaining walls. The Winklerberg, which is completely protected against the cold northern winds, is considered the warmest German location with an almost subtropical climate. This was done by Professor dr. Karl miller (1881-1955), the director of the viticulture institute Freiburg detected in the period 1928-1932 by field investigations. The west-northwest to southeast, and in the steep terraces mainly to the southwest aligned vineyards in 190 to 295 meters above sea level with 0 to 80% slope include 117 hectares of vineyards. The location was in the course of Land Consolidation considerably expanded and is quite different due to the size. The historic Winklerberg is dominated by volcanic weathering soils with silicate inclusions and loess soil on the high plateau. In particular, the Burgundy varieties are cultivated. Shares in the situation have for example the wineries Dr. Heger. Brothers Müller. Karle Gerhard. Pix Reinhold and Stigler Andreas,
