Description

A vineyard that had been abandoned since the 1950s, and is being progressively recultivated since 2008. The name rightly suggests the presence of ore-bearing rock. The vineyard is barren and extremely steep. Although the climate of the Atzberg is similar to Spitz, it still belongs to the district of Wei├čenkirchen.
