Yes, it does exist: a vineyard in the northern Eifel. A Dedenborner inhabitant has planted here on 180 square meters 50 grapevines. Unfortunately, the wine is not available for sale due to the small quantity.
In addition, there is a great view of Dedenborn at this point.

A hobby winemaker from Dedenborn has been operating a winegrowing plot here on the so-called "Richardsley" on Dedenborner Südhang since 1998. The secret of why wine can mature here despite unfavorable weather conditions is a special grape variety called "Ortega".
In warmer environments, this grape has a very short growing season and therefore a sweet and spicy taste with a pleasant acidity. Due to the barren, slate-rich soil in Dedenborn and the comparatively few hours of sunshine, the Ortega matures more slowly on the Richardsley and is therefore also differentiated in taste. With less sweetness, yet with the same pleasant acidity and a fruity note, the "Dedenborner Richardsley" has its own tart and dry note.
