Vineyards in the best sites of the valley
In this most northern part, the Mosel valley is very narrow and the vineyards very steep. The warm micro climate and the use of terrasses along the south facing slopes allows the vines to grow to full ripeness despite the northern location. The use of mashinery is impossible and all work including harvesting is done by hand.
| The UHLEN vineyard is one
of the steepest vineyards in the Moselle valley. Facing directly south,
it receives the most intense sun exposure in the region. This and
the low percipitation based on the poor soil result in always low
yields making for intense wines reflecting the mineral elements of
the almost redish soil consisting of clay and slate. Konrad Hähn uses
the grapes of this vineyard mostly for his dry (trocken) wines. These
wines are very fullbodied and are great to sip on or wonderful with
poultry, veal, rabbit, seafood, steamed fish, raw bar, sushi etc.
|| The WEISSENBERG vineyard
is facing southeast and has deeper soil and more weathered slate.
Here the wines are more minerally and fleshy. They tend to be more
elegant and fruit-focused. The grapes are mostly used to produce medium
dry and sweeter style wines. Most of the late harvest and dessertwines
come from this vineyard.
