Mölsheim | VDP.AUS ERSTEN LAGEN
200 m in elevation, approx. 40% gradient, lime/ lime gravel
Our vineyards in Mölsheim are higher than those in Rheinhessen, and as such are cooler than our Hohen-Sülzen sites. The wines from the Erste Lage are deeply rooted in barren stony soils of pure limestone, with only a thin layer of humus. In combination with the cool winds from the Donnersberg massif, wines produced here are unique for their cool, crystalline character, mineral backbone and saline depth.
