Berg Rottland

The meaning of “Rottland” is “cleared land” pointing to the clearing of the hills in 1040 for growing wine. A nearly perfect wine growing microclimate is achieved here due to the strong intensity of light, a product of the southerly exposition of this vineyard and optimal light reflection from the Rhine. The soils are shaped by high contents of slate that, in addition to the vineyard exposure, add to the microclimate by storing heat by day and releasing it by night.
