single vineyard in the municipalities of Oberbergen and Schelingen (Kaiserstuhl area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. The name can be traced back to the original shape of the site before the land consolidation in 1971, which is no longer recognisable today. The vineyards, which are mainly oriented to the south to southwest, and in some terraces to the east, west and northwest, are partly terraced and have a slope of 0 to 70%. They cover about 240 hectares of vineyards, 38 of which are in the municipality of Schelingen. The soils, which are very inhomogeneous due to their huge size, consist of weathered volcanic rock, carbonatite, tephritic lava and loess. Individual plots are only suitable for viticulture to a limited extent. The varieties cultivated here are Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Silvaner, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Muscat, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the wineries Keller Franz, Schätzle Gregor and Thomas and Schätzle Leopold.
