single vineyard in the municipality of Bad Kreuznach in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The name, which was first mentioned in 1684, has nothing to do with Shrovetide, but is derived from "Norr" (barren place of pebbles and gravel). The second part of the name refers to the mountain top (Kuppe). The southwest to south-facing vineyards, with slopes ranging from 5 to 30%, cover 28 hectares of vines. The soils consist of gravelly and fine-sandy sloping loam with some gravel and crushed stone in the subsoil. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. Shares are held, for example, by the Anheuser Paul, Dhom Jürgen, Emrich-Montigny and Reichsgraf von Plettenberg wineries
