single vineyard in the municipality of Bad Dürkheim (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. In 1155, an Abbot Sigehard von Lambrecht donated a field on the "Monte Sancti Michaelis" to Otterberg Monastery. Until 1601, this was the site of the eponymous Michael Chapel, which was a popular pilgrimage destination for several centuries. The vineyard, which faces south to southeast at an altitude of 110 to 150 metres above sea level with a slope of 10 to 30%, covers five hectares of vineyards. It is surrounded by sandstone walls. The soil consists of limestone with portions of sandy loam and lime marl. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the wineries Gebrüder Bart, Darting Helmut, Fitz-Ritter, Gut Zumstein and Schaefer Karl.
