The winegrowing map from 1868 shows the river section of the Middle Moselle - from Trier to Reil. Even then, the important vineyards were recorded and documented. The many meanders and loops of the Moselle can also be seen very clearly. Originally, the Romans introduced viticulture to the Moselle and used the river as a transport route for the wine produced here. Today, the central part of the Moselle is the largest wine-growing area of the Moselle in terms of area, with around 6,000 ha of vineyards.
The elongated Maringer Sonnenuhr vineyard borders directly on the tranquil village of Maring, which lies in a side valley of the Moselle near Bernkastel-Kues. The slope rises from the Moselle's valley of origin to a height of 130-220 metres above sea level, with a slope gradient of 50-60%. The Maringer Sonnenuhr is in a south-west facing vineyard location and has a mineral slate soil. Optimal conditions for excellent Rieslings.
The Maringer Honigberg vineyard opens up like a fan-shaped open-air stage towards Maring. Starting out rather flat, the individual vineyard parcels gradually climb up the slope and are bordered by forests at the top. Our Rieslings enjoy a particularly long growing season with late ripening and the resulting individual play of aromas and complexity. The terrior guarantees an optimal supply of nutrients and minerals. Our popular varieties Riesling, Pinot Noir, Kerner and Pinot Blanc grow here.
