Frankweiler Biengarten

VDP.Erste Lage in Frankweiler

While most of the vineyards along the Haardtrand (part between Pfälzer Wald und Rheinebene) are west facing, there are also south facing vineyards, like our vineyard side «Frankweiler Biengarten». Our part is west of «Deutsche Weinstrasse» and round about 200 m over NN and has 10 % gradient.

Our vines grow on limestone, which developed 220 Million years ago in the time of Trias. The specific type of soil expresses a tastable minerality - the balance between Salt and Acitiy - that gives the wine a long aftertaste.
