Lerchensand is a southward hillside vineyard. This narrow and low hill is covered with small vine fields. High amounts of clay contribute to the dark colour of the ground and low fertility. The underground belongs to the Keuper marl of the Trias period. 210 millions years ago, an ancient sea evaporated, leaving salt and clay. The combination of high amounts of magnesium, the storage of warmth and the incredibly long vegetation period is what makes it possible in the first place to produce such outstanding whites with crisp acidity.
