single vineyard in the municipality of Albig (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The name has nothing to do with a dog, but derives from "Hunskopf" (head of a giant = giant-like man). The south (50%), west (25%), east (20%) and north (5%) facing vineyards in the shape of a cauldron cover 169 hectares of vineyards with slopes ranging from 2 to 38%. Loess-marl soils predominate. The main varieties grown here are Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. The wineries Baumann Ralf, Hauck Heinz-Günter, Hildegardishof and Neef-Emmich, for example, have shares in the site.
