The Saarburger Laurentiusberg is the oldest vineyard site on the Mosel, Saar and Ruwer rivers that is still true to its roots. A vineyard with history and enormous potential for Riesling.
The vineyard lies impressively in front of the city gate of Saarburg, directly adjacent to the banks of the Saar. The Saarburger St.Laurentiuskirche (St.Laurentius church) was the eponym and was already built in the 13th century above the present vineyard. In 1856, the conversion and new building in neo-Gothic style was completed. Underneath, the Saarburger Laurentiusberg vineyard was laid out in the middle of a rocky massif. The excavation material for the conversion of the church was then thrown over the Saarburger city wall and carried onto the bare rock.
In 1870, the Laurentiusberg was planted with Riesling vines in single-pile cultivation under its first owner, the parish priest of Saarburg. A short time later the property went to the mayor of Saarbrücken, Mr. von Frankenberg. In 1923 the Laurentiusberg was sold to the Dienhart family. Payment was made exclusively in Goldmark, as the mountain and the Rieslings pressed from it were awarded the value of gold. For reasons of age and lack of offspring, the Dienhart family had to stop cultivating the vineyard after almost one hundred years and leased this unique terroir to Weingut Dr. Wagner in Saarburg since 2017.
