Vineyard used as final resting place or cemetery. Naturalistic burials are increasingly preferred. In Germany there are two such unusual burial places. One is located in the Ahr valley in Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, the second was inaugurated at the end of 2018 and is located in Nordheim am Main in Franconia. Since Nordheim has no forest to offer a burial under trees, the idea of a cemetery vineyard was born. On an area of 3,500 square metres 186 vines were planted and up to eight urns can be buried per vine. PIWI varieties were planted out because the effort required for plant protection is lower. However, no grapes or wine are produced from the vines. There are already inquiries from all over Germany. See also under customs in viticulture.
