single vineyard in the municipality of Rauenthal in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. 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 site, which resembles a spearhead. The south to southwest-facing vineyards with 15 to 50% slopes cover 17 hectares of vineyards on phyllite slate soils with deep loess and loess loam. The Riesling variety is cultivated here in particular. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the H. J. Ernst and Hessische Staatsweingüter (Eberbach Monastery) wineries.
