single vineyard in the municipality of Forst (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. In the Bavarian site classification of 1828, this was designated as a Pfälzer Spitzenlage. The south-facing vineyard at 120 to 130 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 10% covers 3.5 hectares of vines. The soil consists of red sandstone rubble with clay particles on a limestone plate. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. The Bassermann-Jordan, Mosbacher Georg, Reichsrat von Buhl and Spindler Heinrich wineries, for example, own shares in the site.
