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
