For the Westhofen Riesling, grapes from adjacent vineyards are also cellared in addition to grapes from the VDP.GROSSEN LAGEN® Morstein and Brunnenhäuschen, which are delineated by parcel. These are classified as VDP.ERSTE LAGE®. Here, the typical limestone minerality of Westhofen is evident. These are wines of high fruit ripeness. Dense and mineral, they show the potential of the top sites of Westhofen.
The VDP.ERSTEN LAGEN® and VDP.GROSSEN LAGEN® in Westhofen are dominated by heavy clay marl soils with limestone intercalation in the upper layer. The subsoil is dominated by water-bearing limestone rock layers.
