Frequently occurring single-layer name in Germany. The name indicates a former possession or cultivation by the Catholic Jesuit Order.

Forst - Palatinate (Middle Haardt-German Wine Route)

The name is derived from the Jesuit Order, which owned the site until 1773. In the Bavarian site classification of 1828, the site was rated second highest. The southeast-facing vineyard at 120 to 150 metres above sea level with a slope of up to 15% covers seven hectares of vines. The soils consist of red sandstone weathering with intercalations of volcanic basalt and calcareous clay marl with a high humus content. The Riesling variety is cultivated here in particular. The Bassermann-Jordan, Dr. Bürklin-Wolf, Margarethenhof, Mosbacher Georg, Müller Eugen, Reichsrat von Buhl, Spindler Heinrich and Weingut von Winning wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
