Single vineyard in the municipality of Norheim in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The name is most likely derived from cherry trees that used to stand there. The south-facing vineyards at 120 to 190 meters above sea level with a slope of 10 to 15% cover 13.5 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of the volcanic rock porphyry with portions of slate with sandstone intercalations (Rotliegendem). The slate, which is easily heated, has good water drainage. The slope foot as well as the upper parcels differ in soil type and wine character. The varieties Riesling, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder are cultivated here. The steep slope and the rocky soil allow only low yields up to a maximum of 50 hl/ha. Shares have e.g. the wineries Dönnhoff Hermann, Dr. Crusius, Korrell Johanneshof, Mathern and Schneider Jakob
