A gift from the Archbishop of Trier brought the parcel into the hands of the former Friedrich Wilhelm Gymnasium, a charitable organization, which in turn was purchased by Daniela Weis' family upon the dissolution of the charity.
The Blattenberg is Mehring's finest vineyard site and, before the 1971 wine law revision, possessed the single-vineyard assignation layet (the old German word for 'slate'). Benefiting from its full exposure to sun and wind, the Blattenberg rests upon soils composed of bright blue slate with layers of quartz folded within. The Mosel River is very wide as it meanders through Mehring and so radiates a greater warmth to the nearby vineyards.
The off dry wines from the "Mehringer Blattenberg" vineyard are powerful, spicy and refined.
