Ruppertsberger Reiterpfad

VDP. Erste Lage

Ruppertsberger Reiterpfad

With its 60 hectares, the Reiterpfad forms a large terrace sloping ever so slightly to the east-south-east. It was formed over thousands of years of red sandstone boulders from the Haardt mountains. Thanks to its exposed location and the somewhat greater distance to the edge of the Pfälzerwald forest, the Reiterpfad enjoys particularly long hours of sun from early morning to late evening. Since the Haardt mountain range is very much closed without any significant valleys from Ruppertsberg to Wachenheim, the vineyards are well protected from the wind. Our Reiterpfad Riesling consists of the Hofstück parcel which is classified as VDP.Große Lage, as well as three other parcels. These are closer to the edge of the forest and therefore somewhat cooler and wetter. Together this results in a perfect balance.
