The LINGENFELDER estate is gradually expanding. We recently leased a further 0.45ha in the Osterberg vineyard area. The two parcels (Fallert and Orleberg) are situated on a slight south-facing slope with deep ‘loess' soils. On the 22nd of April 1999 we planted them with Dornfelder on SO4 rootstock (SO4=Selection Oppenheim No.4). The orientation here is east-west as the whole area is slightly terraced. The vine spacing is 2m x 1.2m.
