At a peak of 327 meters above sea level, Euchariusberg is one of the highest hills in the Saar region. It towers above the wine villages of Ober- and Niedermennig in Konzer Tälchen. From the south-facing slope, you can see Krettnach and Oberemmel in the distance. But Euchariusberg is not a stunning steep slope, but, rather, a gently rising hill. One does not realise that it is one of the best vineyards for world-famous Saar Riesling.
The once famous Euchariusberg, which historically had no village name attached to the site, is relatively steep at the summit and looks like a mini-Scharzhofberg. At the end of the 19th century, which was the heyday of Saar and Mosel Riesling, Euchariusberg was one of the highly acclaimed sites on the Saar. Like the Scharzhofberg, which is located in the same side valley, it has mainly gray weathered slate, quartz, and hard quartzite-bearing sandstone, along with cool winds.
On Franz Josef Clotten’s 1868 Viticultural Map of the Saar and Mosel, Euchariusberg is one of the few top sites on the Saar. These were colored dark red on the map. The best parcels of Euchariusberg are located in the place name Großschock, which, sadly, has been forgotten for decades.
