Ölberg

Popular single vineyard designation (also spelled Oelberg) in Germany. The name usually has a reference 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, Joh 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 vines on weathered granite soil. Gewürztraminer is the main grape variety cultivated here. Members of the Durbacher WG and the Männle Heinrich winery, for example, have shares in the site.
