Single vineyard site in the municipality of Wachenheim (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstrasse area) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate. It is possible that the name (not to be taken derogatory) is due to a previous owner, because according to a document from 1499, a Philipp von Bechtolsheim ceded this plot of land to his cousin Grympel (first name going back to Grimbald). In other documents the location is also called "Crumpel", "Krümpell" and "Grümbel", which also allows an interpretation according to the "crumbly soil" (Letten = loam). The south-southeast facing vineyards at an altitude of 120 to 180 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 15 to 20% comprise 13 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of loamy sandstone weathering interspersed with lime marl. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by Dr. Bürklin-Wolf, Mosbacher Georg, Schaefer Karl, members of Wachtenburg Winzer and carpenter Emil.
