single vineyard in the municipality of Gimmeldingen (Neustadt/Weinstraße, Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The name refers to beekeeping, which is still practised today. In the Royal Bavarian Soil Evaluation of 1828, the site received a top rating. The vineyards, which face east-northeast to south-southeast in the shape of an amphitheatre at an altitude of 150 to 220 metres above sea level with a slope of 15 to 35%, cover 20 hectares of partly steeply terraced vineyards. To the west, the site is protected from cold winds by the Haardt Mountains. The soils consist of red sandstone rubble with slight portions of limestone marl. The Riesling variety is the main variety cultivated here. The wineries Christmann Arnold, Ohler Johann, Weik Bernd and Ziegler August, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!Dominik Trick
