Single vineyard name occurring several times in the German Nahe growing region. In addition to the three sites listed in detail below, there is a fourth site in the municipality of Gutenberg.

Bad Münster am Stein-Ebernburg (Großlage Burgweg)

This south-west to south-facing vineyard, which is embedded in a group of rocks at 117 to 167 metres above sea level and has a slope of 40 to 60%, covers just 0.7 hectares of vines. The soil consists of stony-gritty hanging loam over the volcanic rock rhyolite. The Riesling is cultivated here. The vineyard is the sole property of the Jung Eckard winery.

Bockenau (Großlage Rosengarten)

The south to south-west facing vineyard at 200 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope of 40 to 60% covers almost nine hectares of vines in the Ellerbach valley basin (side valley of the upper Nahe). The soil consists of a conglomerate of blue Devonian slate, white-grey quartzite and basalt scree with loam over loess at the foot of the site. Forests above the site provide optimal protection from cold downdraughts. The Riesling is cultivated here in particular. The Schäfer-Fröhlich winery, for example, has a share in the vineyard.
