|The best location on the famous Brauneberger Juffer vineyard is
Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr. The Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler Estate has
parcels in one of the steepest parts of the vineyard, which is thus
predestined for the production of extra-premium quality wines.
"Brauneberg" means "brown hill", which is accounted for by the shallow and stony brownish-colored soil of this vineyard. The clay slate soil has a high mineral content and permits the production of elegant, classy wines with great breadth and fine fruitiness.
The term Juffer is local jargon for ”unmarried daughter" and appeared for the first time in the year 1790, when the three unmarried daughters of the chamberlain of the electoral palatinate made wine at this location and thus made Brauneberger Juffer-Sonnenuhr famous because of them.
