single vineyard in the municipality of Ungstein (Bad Dürkheim, Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The name is derived from the many walnut trees that used to stand among the vines here. The south to southwest facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 5 to 15% cover 70 hectares of vineyards. The loamy sandy soils are partly gravelly and covered with fine soil. The best plots are located on the middle slope of the site. The varieties cultivated here include Riesling, Rieslaner, Traminer, Scheurebe, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. The Bärenhof, Pfeffingen, Weingut am Nil, Wolf Michael and Zeter Oliver wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
