single vineyard in the municipality of Königsbach (Neustadt/Weinstraße, Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The name is derived from the initials I. D. for Jesus Domini on a former field cross in the location. Known at least since the 14th century, the site was underestimated for a long time. Only after a change of ownership in 1835 to Haus Buhl was the quality fully exploited. The south to south-east facing vineyards at 120 to 175 metres above sea level with a slope of 10 to 25% cover 18 hectares of vineyards. They are protected from the wind to the west by the Rolandsberg and the Haardt Mountains. The soils consist of calcareous marl with a high proportion of limestone with pure calcareous sand in the subsoil and have an excellent water retention capacity. The varieties cultivated here are mainly Pinot Noir and Riesling. The Christmann Arnold, Ohler Johann and Weik Bernd wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
