Alte Reben Trabacher Schlossberg

A southwest-facing slope that adjoins the Burgberg, looking across the Schottbach side valley. The Böcking parcels in this vineyard are identified in the oldest maps of the Mosel and compete with the Ungsberg as the greatest vineyards in this bend of the Mosel. Our oldest vines grow in Schlossberg, characterized by fine and fragile gray and blue slate.
