Mount of Olives

Popular single vineyard designation (also in the spelling Oelberg) in Germany. The name mostly has a reference to the Olive Mountain in the Bible, which got its name from the olive trees growing there. Jesus stayed on this mountain in the east of Jerusalem several times (Lk 21/37, Lk 22/39, Joh 8/1, Mk 13/3).

Durbach - Baden (Ortenau)

The west-south facing vineyards are situated at an altitude of 220 to 260 metres above sea level and have a slope gradient of 40 to 80%. They comprise almost 14 hectares of vineyards on granite weathered soil. Here, mainly Gewürztraminer is cultivated. Members of the Durbacher WG as well as the Männle Heinrich Winery have shares in the site.
