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 here among the vines. The vineyards, which face south to southwest, are 110 to 150 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 15% and cover 65 hectares. Due to the size, there are different soils. The loamy sandy soils are partly gravelly and covered with fine soil. The best plots are in the middle slope of the site. Here, white wine varieties such as Riesling, Rieslaner, Traminer and Scheurebe are cultivated, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. The Bärenhof, Isegrim, Pfeffingen, Weingut am Nil, Wolf Michael and Zeter Oliver wineries, for example, have shares in the vineyard.
As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.Hans-Georg Schwarz
