Single vineyard site in the municipality of Königsbach (Neustadt/Weinstraße, area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate. The name is derived from the initials I. D. for Jesus Domini on a former field cross in the vineyard. The vineyard, known at least to the 14th century, was underestimated for a long time. Only after a change of ownership in 1835 to the House of Buhl was the quality fully exploited. The south- to south-east-facing vineyards at an altitude of 120 to 175 metres above sea level with a slope of 10 to 25% comprise 18 hectares of vineyard area. They are sheltered from the wind to the west by the Rolandsberg and the Haardtgebirge. The soils consist of limestone marl with a high proportion of limestone with pure lime sand in the subsoil and have an excellent water storage capacity. Here mainly the varieties Spätburgunder and Riesling are cultivated. The Christmann Arnold, Ohler Johann and Weik Bernd wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
