Almond Trail

Single vineyard site in the community of Dirmstein (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine growing region Palatinate. It was first mentioned in 1557 as "am Mandel Pfad". In the past, there were almond trees used for economic purposes, some of which still characterise the landscape today. The vineyards, which are oriented to the south to south-east, at an altitude of 120 metres above sea level with a slope of 10 to 15%, cover 160 hectares of vineyard area. The deep soils consist of a loess layer interspersed with limestone with fine soil; the subsoil is dominated by limestone. In the central part there are favoured plots, this is, among others, "Himmelsrech". Shares in the location are, for example, the Jesuitenhof, Knipser, Schlossgut Janson and Zelt Mario

There are two more individual sites called Mandelpfad in the two Palatinate municipalities of Obrigheim and Rohrbach.
