Henkenberg VDP.GROSSE LAGE | 48 ° 05'38.7 "N 7 ° 36'43.7" E
At first glance you tend to overlook it, it is so inconspicuous - more of a flat back than a mountain.
However, the subsoil of the HENKENBERG consists of cooled, weathered lava flows, interspersed with limestone veins. This layer is covered by dark volcanic ash. The moderate slope and the unique water storage capacity of the upper class protect the vines from excessive heat. The large plants of white, gray and pinot noir come from our best plots, planted with old vines.
These parcels are called STEINGRUBENBERG, BÜCHSENBERG, BLUTBÜCKLE and GALGENBUCK,
because the HENKENBERG used to be a manorial place of execution.
