Unlike the names of the other vineyards, 'Pechstein' is of geological origin.
The only basalt occurring in the Palatinate, the basalt in Forst is called 'pitchstone' on account of its black colour. Thanks to the characteristics of the soil and the microclimate, the Pechstein Rieslings display an extraordinary degree of minerality. Tasting reveals a wine rich in filigree finesse, slender and long in taste. The aromas are reminiscent of citrus and flint.
The total area of the vineyard is 15 ha, of which we own 2.5. ha.
