single vineyard (also Paradiswingert) in the municipality of Deidesheim (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The former name was Waldberg. The current name was coined in the early 1950s by Ökonomierat Hoch, then owner of the Dr. Deinhard winery. To emphasise the new name, he had a statue of a woman representing Eve in paradise erected in the vineyard. Since November 1983, the municipality of Deidesheim has leased individual vines of the municipal property at this site to public figures. The first holders were the German President Richard von Weizsäcker (1920-2015) and the long-time German Chancellor Helmut Kohl (1930-2017).

The vineyard, which is oriented from east to southeast, is 120 to 170 metres above sea level with a slope of 15 to 25% and covers 30 hectares of vines. The soils consist of weathered red sandstone with sandstone rubble and loess loam. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. The wineries Bassermann-Jordan, Christmann Arnold, Hanewald-Schwerdt, Kimich, Reichsrat von Buhl, Siben and Weingut von Winning, for example, all have shares.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
