Origin of name
The name refers to the former cultivation of flax. 'Lin' was the ancient word for flax or linen. The word 'Höhle' originates from 'helde' for slope. LEINHÖHLE therefore means 'flax field on a slope'.
The high exposure to the sun together with the light soil produces very fragrant wines reminiscent of peaches and apricots and with a balanced and marked acidity. The delicate fragrant aroma is excellently suited to produce medium-dry wines of delicate sweetness as well as powerful dry wines.
