single vineyard in the municipality of Hallgarten in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name is probably derived from "Hindelberg" and does not refer to a chicken but to a hind (Hinde = hind). It was first mentioned in a document as early as 1418. At that time, the Archbishop of Mainz, Johann II von Nassau, allowed the Hallgarteners to clear the area and plant it with vines in exchange for interest wine. The south to south-east facing vineyards at an altitude of 180 to 250 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 18% cover 23 hectares of vineyards on deep, stony-grassy slate soils. In the lower area, alluvial soils predominate, while parcels in the upper area are considered the best. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. The wineries Bibo & Runge, Fürst Löwenstein, Kühn Peter Jakob and Prinz Fred, for example, have shares in the site.
