They are protected from cold winds by a ridge in the west towards the Palatinate Forest. The soils consist of reddish, weathered red sandstone(Rotliegendes) with intercalated lime marl and slate. They have a low water storage capacity. Riesling,Pinot Blanc and PinotNoir are cultivated here. The vineyards Dr. Wehrheim, Emil Bauer & Söhne, Gies-Düppel, Ökonomierat Rebholz, Scholler Helmut and SieneR - Wettstein have shares.
