Maushöhle is a well-protected location to be found in a depression on the fringes of the Palatinate Forest. The name does not refer to mice but rather originates from someone whose name was "Maus". Lavish soils formed from aeolian silt deposits, loam, mottled sandstone and a humus-rich top layer produce full-fruited and aromatic wines with invigorating acidity.
