Cross (single vineyard Germany)

single vineyard in the municipalities of Oppenheim and Dienheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen, which optionally appears on the label under these two names. The east to south-east facing vineyards with slopes of up to 20% cover 50 hectares of vineyards. At the core, the soils consist of large loess beds interspersed with fragments of coarse and shell limestone, as well as clayey loam. There are repeated fossil finds of plants and marine animals. It is mainly Pinot Noir that is cultivated here. The vineyards of Dr. Heyden, the Protestant Church of Hesse and Nassau, Kissinger and Kühling-Gillot, for example, have shares in the site. There are other single vineyards named Kreuz in the municipalities of Feuerthal (Franconia), Friedelsheim, Kirchheim/Weinstraße (Palatinate), Ockenheim and Oppenheim (Rheinhessen).
