Im Sonnenschein

single vineyard in the municipality of Siebeldingen (Südliche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The south-facing vineyards at an altitude of 160 to 225 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 20% cover around one hundred hectares of vineyards. The soils, which are quite varied due to their size, consist of weathered limestone, gravel, mottled sandstone, sand, loam and clayey limestone marl. Only a few parcels can be considered particularly privileged. Before the land consolidation in 1971, individual areas of the site were known by different names depending on the grape varieties cultivated. The privileged Riesling parcel on gravel, loam, sand and red sandstone is the Gewann Ganshorn, which has since been classified as a cadastral site. The area with the two varieties Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc on predominantly shell limestone soil used to be called "Siebeldinger Berg". The Feitig-Richter, Gies-Düppel, Ökonomierat Rebholz, Schneider Eugen and SieneR - Wettstein vineyards, for example, have shares in the site.
