Single vineyard site in the municipality of Ruppertsberg (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstrasse) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate
. It owes its name to a castle complex of the Knights of Ruprechtsberg destroyed in the 14th century. However, the origin of the castle dates back to Roman times, which is attested by numerous finds. A special exhibit was a closed barrel jug from the 4th century, which still contained remains of wine. Probably at this time wine was already being grown here. The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vineyards on red sandstone weathered soils. The heart of the estate is a plot of land enclosed by a 1.5 metre high wall. The varieties Riesling, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder are cultivated. The Bassermann-Jordan
, Dr. Bürklin-Wolf
and Villa Wolf
wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
