Exposure: south-facing slope
Soil: gray-brown mixed shale
History and Trivia: This high-quality, steep south-facing slope is located on a small tributary of the Mosel, along the river Drohn. Today vines are grown here on nearly 85 acres. The ancient Romans were also cultivating grapes in the same valley, and in the Middle Ages many winemakers were using the same plots.
In 1897 the German author Karl Heinrich Koch wrote that the “Throner Hofburg” has a reputation among the Mosel wines and is not insignificant of the village crown on its 300+ acres. The location has been designated as a Class 1 position.
