Located in the municipality of Dorsheim in the German Nahe
wine region. The name dates back to the 16th century, when "Petermännchen" was the popular name for a small silver coin (albus). It is possible that the name refers to the Peter depicted on this coin. The layer immediately adjacent to the gold hole
appears for the first time in the register of layers in 1860. The south-facing vineyards at an altitude of 220 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 40 to 55% comprise over six hectares of vines. The soil, interspersed with weathered slate, has a high proportion of quartzite and pebbles. The Riesling in particular is cultivated here. The vineyards Joh. Bapt. Schäfer
, Schlossgut Diel
, for example, have their share of the site.
