Georg Breuer Rudesheimer Berg Schlossberg Riesling

Schlossberg lies in the bend of the Rhine, the so-called “Binger Loch”, west of Rüdesheim and opposite Bingen and the Mäuseturm. Here, the Rhine changes direction and flows after its Rheingau East-West Intermezzo back to the north. Very steep, the rows of vines rise here with 65 percent inclination from 120 to 160 meters above sea level and are held by strong vineyard walls. The sun’s intensity in the south to southwest facing GL is high, the mountain arches towards the sun and the Rhine does as a mirror its remainder. The soils of the approximately 25 hectares of steep slope are made of Taunus quartzite and Phyllitschiefer and are quite permeable, but serve as an additional heat storage.
