single vineyard in the municipality of Schloßböckelheim (Großlage Burgweg) in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The vineyard slope is the scree slope of the rocks above, from which the name is derived. The south-west to south-facing vineyard at 130 to 200 metres above sea level with a slope of 25 to 60% covers 11 hectares of vines. The soils consist of weathered volcanic rock, porphyry, stony-gritty loam and lots of fine soil. The rocky belt on the ridge provides excellent protection from cold downslope winds. The Riesling variety is mainly cultivated here. The Dönnhoff Hermann, Dr Crusius, Hehner-Kiltz, Reichsgraf von Plettenberg and Schäfer-Fröhlich wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
