single vineyard in the municipality of Ruppertsberg (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. It was already mentioned in the 14th century as "Geizebuhel". In the Bavarian site classification of 1828, the Gaisböhl was considered Ruppertsberg's top site. The name is derived from a former goat pasture situated on a hill (Bühel). The south-facing flat vineyard at 120 metres above sea level with a slope of only 5% covers eight hectares of vines on red sandstone weathered soil with gravel and clay seams in the subsoil. Only the Riesling variety is cultivated here. The site is solely owned by the Dr. Bürklin-Wolf winery.
