Single location in the municipality of Rauenthal in the German Rheingau wine growing region. It was mentioned in documents in 1688 as "ufm Giren". The Old High German "Ger" means spear and refers to the wedge-shaped shape of the terrain, which resembles a spearhead. The south-southwest-facing vineyards with a slope gradient of 15 to 50% comprise 17 hectares of vineyards on phyllite slate soils with deep loess and loess clay. The Riesling variety in particular is cultivated here. The H. J. Ernst and Hessische Staatsweingüter (Eberbach Monastery), for example, have shares in the site.
