Popular single vineyard designation (also spelled Oelberg) in Germany. The name is mostly related to the Mount of Olives in the Bible, which got its name from the olive trees growing there. Jesus stayed on this mountain to the east of Jerusalem several times (Lk 21/37, Lk 22/39, Jn 8/1, Mk 13/3).

Durbach - Baden (Ortenau)

The west to south facing vineyards at 220 to 260 metres above sea level with a slope of 40 to 80% cover almost 14 hectares of vineyards on granite weathered soil. Gewürztraminer is the main variety cultivated here. Members of the Durbacher WG, for example, as well as the Männle Heinrich vineyard have shares in the site.
