It doesn't get more mineral
Steep vineyards, between Mertesdorf and Waldrach in the Ruwer Valley, surround the village of Kasel. The wines produced here, from a basic quality wine up to Spätlese, are mostly dry and off-dry at Bischöfliche Weingüter Trier. The nearby hills protect the vines from the cold north and east winds. In addition, the slate soil retains good moisture and allows the vines grow down deep.
Besides the parcels in the single vineyard of Kaseler Nies’chen, Bischöfliche Weingüter Trier farms another 6.9 ha in the district of Kasel

Stony, dark slate soil; little humus with good water retention underground
In the side valleys of the Ruwer, the Kaseler plots are protected from the wind, so that the flowering is even and the grapes can ripen nicely in autumn. One of the parcels in Kaseler Kehrnagel is ideal for high-quality Eiswein (ice wine) if the weather plays along.
