Schlossberg Staufen

The distinctive basin-shaped mountain was held from the 12th through the 16th century by the Freiherren von Staufen and has been planted with vines since the 18th century. The vines run straight up to the castle ruins and the site is counted as one of the Markgräferland’s finest vineyards. Weißburgunder and Riesling thrive on these shell limestone and keuper soils laced with iron minerals.
