Cherry Orchard

Single vineyard site in the municipality of Laumersheim (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstrasse area) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate. The name is derived from the former ownership of the property by the Kirschgarten monastery in Worms. The first documented mention from 1654 was "Im Kirschgarthen". The south-east-facing vineyards at an altitude of 140 metres above sea level with up to 15% incline cover 45 hectares of vineyard area. The soils consist of loess loam with limestone in the subsoil and have a good water storage capacity. The main varieties cultivated here are Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. The Knipser, Kuhn Philipp and Zelt Mario wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
