single vineyard in the municipality of Bühlertal (Ortenau area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. The name is derived from a rock in the shape of an angel. The vineyards, which are oriented from west to predominantly southeast, cover 54 hectares of vineyards on granite soils. With a slope of up to 75° (373%), the site is one of the steepest vineyards in Europe. It is characterised by large day-night temperature fluctuations. The red wine variety Pinot Noir is cultivated here to about 80%. There are some privileged plots. Part of the area is used as a living vineyard museum of historic viticulture. In 2014, the "Engelssteig" was opened for hikers and climbers. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the wineries Axel Bauer (formerly Duijn), Fendt and Nägelsförst.
