single vineyard (also Nußbrunnen) in the municipality of Hattenheim in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name is derived from a spring that used to be surrounded by nut trees and still exists today. The vineyards, which slope only slightly to the south to south-east, are situated at an altitude of 90 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of up to 15%. They cover ten hectares of vineyards on deep loess soils with sandy loam and marl and have an excellent water retention capacity. The Riesling variety is predominantly cultivated here. The vineyards of Eser August, Freiherr Langwerth von Simmern, Georg Müller Stiftung, Ress Balthasar, Schloss Schönborn and Schloss Reinhartshausen, for example, all have shares in the site.
