single vineyard in the municipality of Wicker in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. A document from 1281 reports that the monasteries of Retters and the Tiefenthal nunnery exchanged their land, mentioning a Nonnen(wein)berg in Wicker. At the beginning of the 19th century, the Nonnenberg was transformed into a south-facing site through extensive soil work. The south-facing vineyard at 80 to 115 metres above sea level with a 15% slope covers 2.7 hectares of vines. It is partly surrounded by a quarry stone wall. The marl soil, interspersed with loess, loess loam and gravel, has a good water retention capacity. The two varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir are cultivated here. The site is in the monopoly of the Flick Joachim winery.
