Single location in the municipality of Dernau in the German growing region of Ahr. The name is derived from the former property of the catholic parish church of Dernaus. The steep vineyards, which face exactly south, cover ten hectares of vineyards with up to 60% gradient at an altitude of 125 to 220 metres above sea level. The greywacke and slate weathered soils are mainly used to cultivate the red wine varieties Blauer Spätburgunder(Pinot Noir), Blauer Portugieser, Frühburgunder and Regent, as well as the white wine varieties Riesling, Kerner, Müller-Thurgau and Optima. It is worth mentioning that a former bunker of the German government is hidden in the depths of the mountain. The producers Ahr Winzer eG, Bertram Julia, Heiner & Kreuzberg, Kreuzberg, Meyer-Näkel, Riske Erwin and Riske Reinhold, for example, have shares in the site.
