VDP.ERSTE LAGE®

The predicate VDP.Erste Lage® identifies first-class locations with an independent character, on which optimal growth conditions prevail and on which wines of high quality have been demonstrably produced over a long period of time. But not only that: the association regularly monitors the quality of the work in these locations. In addition, the wines are regularly tasted by an association commission, which examines and approves the wines according to regional specifications. The first location - Johannisberg and Kapellenberg wines perfectly express the two Bickel-Stumpf terroirs.

THE KAPELLENBERG LOCATION


The Frickenhäuser steep slope of the Kapellenberg lies directly on the Main and overlooks a particularly narrow section of the river valley. Winegrowers have been cultivating their vines on this ancient shell limestone soil for over 1,000 years.


This VDP.ERSTE.LAGE® owes its name to the Valentinus chapel, which was built here at the end of the 17th century by its donor, master cooper Valentin Zang. When, at the age of 48, an inexplicable total body paralysis gripped him, he turned up in his direst need - and vowed to build a chapel among his vines for his namesake, should he be freed from his affliction. His request was heard, the chapel was built - and Zang lives another 20 happy years. One could also say: The Kapellenberg - a blessed spot for blessed wines.

THE JOHANNESBERG LOCATION

The Johannisberg site is east of Thüngersheim and consists of several small side valleys with a south-southwest and east orientation. The vineyards are 180-300m above sea level, have a gradient of up to 60% and are protected from cold easterly winds by a forest belt above the vineyards.
The location is characterized by another geological feature: the Thüngersheim saddle. A tectonic fault caused the red sandstone to break through the layer of lower shell limestone, so that two geological formations of the Franconian Triassic are located next to each other in a very small space.

For winemaker Matthias Bickel-Stumpf and his family, the Silvaner from the Kapellenberg is the benchmark for a Franconian Silvaner!

The wines from this location have a very special juiciness and clear fruit with mineral notes
Kick.
