single vineyard in the municipality of Wicker in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name is derived from the former monastic property. As early as 970, these were the Abbey of Fulda and the Monastery of St. Johann zu Magdeburg, later also the St. Stephansstift and the Carthusians of Mainz. The south to west facing vineyards at 80 to 115 metres above sea level with a slope of 15 to 30% cover almost 17 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of limestone marl and are partly interspersed with loess and gravel. Due to gravel layers in the subsoil, they have a high water storage capacity. Riesling is the main grape variety cultivated here. The Flick Joachim vineyard, for example, has a share.
