single vineyard in the municipality of Mußbach (Neustadt/Weinstraße, Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. There are no specific interpretations about the origin of the original name, but the donkey symbol is omnipresent in the municipality. Among other things, at the eastern entrance to the village, a barrel floor set up vertically shows the image of a donkey, and in summer there is a donkey skin festival at which a live donkey is also paraded around. The south to south-east facing vineyards, with slopes ranging from 5 to 10%, cover 287 hectares of vines. The soils consist of loam, sand and loess.

The best parcels of the site, which is very inhomogeneous due to its enormous size, are located in the middle section. These include the three vineyards Am Rothenstein, Beim Steinernen Bild and Dreißig Morgen, which are registered as cadastral sites in the vineyard register. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the vineyards Bergdolt St. Lamprecht, Christmann Arnold, Kaub Karl-Heinz, Müller-Catoir, Ohler Johann, Weegmüller, Weik Bernd and Ziegler August.
