Isolated location in the municipality of Rödelsee (Steigerwald area) in the German Franconian growing region. The name reminds of the noble family of the chefs of Nortenberg, who settled in Rödelsee in the 14th century. The west-northwest, west and southwest-facing vineyards at an altitude of 250 to 360 metres above sea level with a gradient of 10 to 35% are located on the Schwanberg, the western foothills of the Steigerwald. They comprise 67 hectares of vineyards on calcareous clay marl stone. The upper slope consists of easily heated, calcareous slate slabs mixed with stony weathering material of reed sandstone and dolomite. The location is protected from winds by the Schwanberg hilltop. The white wine varieties Silvaner and Riesling are mainly cultivated here. Shares in the vineyard are, for example, held by the Brennfleck, Hemberger Roland, Ilmbacher Hof, Juliusspital, Ruck Johann, Weigand, Weinmanufaktur 3 Zeilen and Weltner Paul.
