single vineyard in the municipality of Mundelsheim (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. The name is derived from the rocks in the vineyard, which are coloured "cheese white" by lime. Already in the 18th century, the quality was rated very highly. The site, which is embedded in the Neckar valley in the form of an amphitheatre, consists of countless small terraces. The southeast to south-facing vineyards at an altitude of 200 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope of 20 to 70% cover almost 15 hectares of vineyards on shell limestone soils with clayey loam. There are water-bearing layers in the mountain. The varieties Trollinger, Lemberger and Spätburgunder are cultivated here. The Herzog von Württemberg winery, for example, has a share in the site
