Description

The Winklerberg is one the most famous vineyards in Germany. On its hillside mature world-wide renowned wines. Its towering and free situation at the south-west corner of the Kaiserstuhl gives the grapes their strong taste. Mineral wines with a notably elegant aroma mature at this vineyard, thanks to its good aeration and steep slopes. It is the volcanic soil with its lava walls that gives the Winklerberg wines their excellent character. The “Winklerberg” is famous as the “grand cru terrace” of Germany. A walk of 2.4 km through the volcanic garden Winklerberg is absolutely recommendable.
