single vineyard in the municipality of Bad Kreuznach in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. Vineyards in a district called "Hinkelstein" were first mentioned in 1612. Hinkelstein is the name for an unhewn limestone block that was found there at that time. The southwest to south-facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 5 to 30% cover 42 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of loamy gravel on clay from the Tertiary period with partly fine sandy loam. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. The Anheuser Paul, Finkenauer Anton, Reichsgraf von Plettenberg and Staatsweingut Bad Kreuznach wineries, for example, have shares in the site.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
