One of the steepest vineyards on the Mosel is Ürziger Würzgarten. It has a bright red color and curves around like a giant amphitheater. The red slate and rhyolite, a volcanic stone unique to this site, makes for one-of-a-kind wines in the Mosel Valley.
As in the neighboring Erdener Treppchen, where the Romans built a “little staircase” (hence the name) out of slate, Ürziger Würzgarten has more than 2,000 years of cultivation behind it. The name Würzgarten (“spice garden”) goes back to a method that was common until the 17th century and used to fortify wines with herbs in order to spice them up. For this purpose, spice gardens were planted in the vineyard itself.
This imposing vineyard has a south- to southeast-facing slope that rises to 320 meters above sea level. The special soil lends the Riesling wines from Ürziger Würzgarten a unique character. They have great depth, clear structure, and a subtle acid-fruit interplay. The wines are often characterized by exotic “spicy” flavors that cannot be found anywhere else. In addition, the Riesling wines from Ürziger Würzgarten have an enormous aging potential.
