single vineyard in the municipality of Monzingen in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The name is derived from the steep, bare hillside location. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) already praised a "Monzinger" in 1815. Although he did not mention a location, Halenberg is considered the best location in the municipality. The south to south-west facing vineyard at 160 to 240 metres above sea level with a slope of 25 to 70% covers eight hectares of vines. The easily warmed soil consists of a conglomerate of blue-grey slate with quartzite and pebbles, in the flatter part with admixtures of clay and on the steep slope with lots of gravel and sand.
