single vineyard in the municipality of Iphofen (Steigerwald area) in the German growing region of Franconia. The name has nothing to do with cattle, but is a corruption of "bald mountain". The vineyards, which face west-northwest to west, as well as south, with slopes ranging from 10 to 65%, cover 60 hectares of vineyards on Keuper soils with a mixture of limestone, gypsum, clay and sediments from shellfish and arrow crabs. It is a site open to the wind. The white wine varieties Silvaner, Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Scheurebe are cultivated here. The Brennfleck, Emmerich Werner, Ilmbacher Hof, Rothe Manfred, Ruck Johann, Weigand, Wirsching Hans and Zehntkeller wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
