Situated inside the monastery walls lies the Liebfrauenstift Kirchenstück of Worms; protected from wind and an ideal base of mineral laden soils, this site is one of the best in Rheinhessen. This Großes Gewächs (First Growth) is concentrated on the nose with captivating notes of apricot and minerality.
