EISENBERG

The 415-meter high Eisenberg, which borders on Deutsch-Schützen, unites with the Deutsch-Schützen Weinberg to make for a region perfectly suited for viticulture. To the southeast, the slopes steeply descend towards the plane, forming a basin in which the vineyard sites are protected from cold winds coming from the north. Winegrowing has a long tradition here – but it was only after the great wine pest around 1900 that Blaufränkisch became domestic. The climate and soils on the Eisenberg perfectly match this grape variety, producing fully ripe and aromatic berries.
