The name has its origin in the Middle High German word “Kar” (Key, Dishes). It is a mountain location which is headed south to southwest, bounded by the Strasser Bergweg in the West and protected in the East by a forest.
It is located at 280 to 340 meters above sea level and predominantly cultivated in terraces or on slight slopes. The ground is loam, often overlaid by sandy white or yellow crushed stone.
It is especially suitable for Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc. It creates aromatic, rather light, long-lived wines.
