Kirschgarten Laumersheim Spätburgunder
Elevation: 138 m
Gradient: 5 %
This vineyard benefits from favourable growing conditions as it is sheltered by westerly woodland and peripheral houses. The site is protected from cold westerly winds by the Ohlenberg height to the west.
The vineyard was formerly owned by a convent in Worms. It was first mentioned in 1654 ”im Kirschgarthen“ (literal ”in the cherry garden“).
Loess loam with excellent water retaining ability; limestone in the subsoil. The oldest parcel is located at the lower end of the site, on the periphery of the village of Laumersheim. Since 2007 ”Mergelweg“ has become part of this vineyard which is dominated by limestone.
