single vineyard in the municipality of Boppard in the German wine-growing region of the Middle Rhine. It is part of the Bopparder Hamm vineyard, which is also a district of Boppard with the same name. The foot of the slope of the Ohlenberg is separated by a road running along the bank only about 100 metres from the banks of the Rhine. The name goes back to the fishing industry that was important here in the past, when there was a large deposit of salmon and Rhine eels (Ohl = eel). To the west of it is the Feuerlay site, above it the Weingrube site. The south to south-southwest facing vineyard at an altitude of 60 to 150 metres above sea level covers almost eight hectares of vineyards on clay-slate weathered soil with sandstone. With a slope of 20 to 65% (33°), the site is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany. The Riesling variety is the main variety cultivated here. The Königshof, Müller Matthias, Perll August and Weingart Florian wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
