Wiltinger Braune Kupp | Vineyard site in Wiltingen in the Saar region of Germany. Stuart Pigott says the area here represents the Saar’s most dramatic landscape, at the point where the river makes its only loop during its course from Konz to Serrig. The loop occurs between Kanzem and Wiltingen, creating on the right bank a bowl-like formation affording vines in Wiltinger Braune Kupp and Kanzemer Altenberg ‘the best protection from cold winds anywhere in the Saar.’ The Kupp once enjoyed the highest international standing’, being on ‘precipitous slopes, the most famous vineyard site’ in the Saar region of Germany, but on ‘deeper, loamier soil’ compared to the Scharzhofberg in the same village, giving Rieslings which are comparatively ‘richer, broader and often a little earthy,’ (Stuart Pigott: 1995, p.35)
