single vineyard in the municipality of Norheim in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The name is most likely derived from the cherry trees that used to stand there. The south-facing vineyards at 120 to 190 metres 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 easily heated slate has good water drainage. The foot of the slope and the upper parcels differ in soil type and wine character. The Riesling, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder varieties are cultivated here. The steep slope and the rocky soil only allow low yields up to a maximum of 50 hl/ha. Shares are held, for example, by the wineries Dönnhoff Hermann, Dr. Crusius, Korrell Johanneshof, Mathern and Schneider Jakob.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
