single vineyard in the municipality of Deidesheim (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The name is derived from the old measure of area, Morgen, as well as the exposed location in the form of a plateau, which is supported on the east side by a high red sandstone wall. The south-facing vineyard at 140 metres above sea level with a slope of up to 20% covers 2.8 hectares of vineyards. It is protected from the wind by the Haardt Mountains to the west. The soil consists of weathered red sandstone, limestone rubble, loam and sand with a low percentage of fine soil in the stony topsoil and lime deposits in the subsoil. It has a good water storage capacity. Only Riesling is grown here. The Bassermann-Jordan and Dr. Bürklin-Wolf wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
