single vineyard in the municipality of Gimmeldingen (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. As early as 1456, this vineyard was mentioned in the interest book of the Weißenburg monastery as the origin of excellent grapes. The vineyards, which face east to southeast at an altitude of 150 to 180 metres above sea level with a slope of up to 20%, cover 21 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of red sandstone rubble with loess. A special feature are water veins in the subsoil, which run on a two-metre deep clay layer. The wineries Christmann Arnold, Müller-Catoir, Ohler Johann and Ziegler August, for example, have shares. There are other individual vineyards called Mandelgarten in the Palatinate municipalities of Gönnheim, Wachenheim and Weisenheim.
