Naumberg is a renowned lieu-dit, or “named vineyard”, in the southern half of the Luxembourg Moselle winegrowing region, which is celebrated for its Pinots. It covers a large area with numerous variations in its subsoil, which some winemakers even isolate to produce special cuvées.
Although chiefly admired for its Pinots, Schengen Markusberg has plenty of other strings to its bow. This lieu-dit has played an important role in the history of wine-growing in Luxembourg, and what’s more, it’s also a magnificent terroir … for Riesling!
Shelly limestone is a distinctive feature of the northern half of the Luxembourg winegrowing region, and the Grevenmacher Fels is one of the terroirs that express this remarkable minerality to best effect.
This terroir near Wellenstein in the southern Moselle Valley offers ideal conditions for Pinot Gris. It was in these Keuper marls that the grape variety was first planted in Luxembourg in the 1930s.
