Origin of name

The name of this site has nothing to do with a mousehole but is derived from the sloping vineyard site owned by a family named 'Maus'. The German word 'Halde' for 'Hang' (slope) became 'helde' and finally changed to 'Höhle' (hole).

Wine features

This site produces fruity, mature wines which are well-balanced. They have a fragrant aroma of tropical flavours. The acidity of the Riesling wines from the 'Mäushöhle' site is rather reserved and delicate, but one of great elegance.
