The "Saarfeils" is a steep section of hillside along the Saar. Its name refers to the shrine of the Virgin Mary that once stood here. Facing due south, it is one of the warmest sites on the tributary to the right side of the Mosel. The Saar collects and reflects the glittering rays of sunlight, ensuring that the vines and grapes are bathed in warmth and light. A 90° bend in the Saar occurs here, changing its character immensely and bringing together numerous different soils. The mix of young river sediments and old slate stone translates into wines of striking lightness. They are fruit-forward and traditionally off-dry. All wines from this site bear the short but concise "Saarfeilser" name.
