“Grosse Lage” designates the very best vineyards of Germany. The finest parcels have been precisely demarcated. It is here that particularly expressive wines with exceptional ageing potential grow. This 12-hectare site is located above the city of Saarburg on a very steep slope with a south-facing aspect. The slope gradient is between 30 and 60 percent. The soil is medium grey, finely foliated slate. Pronounced mineral character and elegant structure distinguish the wines from this extraordinary steep site.

In March 2014, Martin Foradori Hofstätter seized the welcome opportunity to revitalize the historic “Weingut Dr. Fischer” on the Saar. The small, internationally acclaimed winery cultivates Riesling in the top class, steep sites “Bockstein” and “Saarburger Kupp”. “In the greatest vintages, the best Mosel wine comes from the Saar,” is a regional vintner saying.
