Popular name for single vineyard sites in Germany. The designation does not necessarily have a religious background, but can also refer to good solar radiation (holy = bright).
The name is derived from a Christian wayside shrine that once stood here. According to a second version there was a prehistoric place of worship here. The vineyards are slightly inclined towards the Rhine. The soil consists of colourful slate and deep loess loam with good water retention capacity. Riesling is cultivated here above all. The Egert and Molitor Karl-Johann wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
