single vineyard in the municipality of Schloßböckelheim (Großlage Burgweg) in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The vineyard slope is the scree 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 a lot of fine soil. The rock belt on the slope ridge provides very good protection from cold downdrafts. The Riesling variety is cultivated here. The wineries Dönnhoff Hermann, Dr. Crusius, Hehner-Kiltz, Reichsgraf von Plettenberg and Schäfer-Fröhlich, for example, have shares in the site.
