Albiger Hundskopf (dog’s head of Albig)
Woof! Woof! A dog's head for vine diversity
Rumour has it that the vineyard looks like a lying dog from the west. Indeed, the hill has a peculiar shape, but not everyone recognises it as a dog shape. Whether this is the case or not, field name researchers consider this charming story to be the most plausible explanation. On the south-western slope, the vines grow on limestone and marl with a rich clay content. All grape varieties are represented, and the winegrowers even produce noble sweet wines with great storage potential here. At the highest point of the vineyard, the tower "Auf dem Fels" (engl. on the hill), a vineyard and observation tower inaugurated in 2001 can be found.
