single vineyard in the municipality of Wintrich (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. The name is derived from a chapel "zum Oelberg". In the 19th and at the beginning of the 20th century, Ohligsberger was one of the most expensive and sought-after wines in Germany. In 1922, a 1913 vintage was served at the Nobel Prize banquet. The vineyards, which face west to southwest at 120 to 200 metres above sea level with slopes ranging from 40 to 80%, cover seven hectares of vineyards on grey-blue, firm weathered slate soil, some of which includes quartzite veins. There are also some directly south-facing larger areas. Directly below the vineyard is the broadly dammed Moselle with weir and ship lock. Only the Riesling variety is cultivated here. The Haart Reinhold, Quint, Später-Veit and St. Nikolaus-Hof wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
