Climate and soil

In the upper region between Altenahr and Marienthal, slate weathering soils predominate in the narrow valley areas. Here the vineyards reach almost to the river. In the lower region between Walporzheim and Heimersheim there are mainly loess clay soils mixed with stone weathering. In the steep terraced vineyards Shales, rocks and vineyard walls made of slate and greywacke store the heat of the sun and give it back to the vines at night, creating a mild, Mediterranean micro climate with relatively high temperatures.
