Single vineyard site in the municipality of Randersacker (Maindreieck area) in the German Franconian wine region, which, with the two sites Innere Leiste and Stein, is one of the three best Franconian vineyards. It was already mentioned in 1329 under the name "Pfulwen". This Old High German word for "pillow" refers to its extraordinary appearance, because the vineyard presents itself to the observer like a "bulging broad marriage bed cushion". The vineyards, which face south-southwest to south and slope steeply down to the Main river bed at an altitude of 185 to 270 metres above sea level with a gradient of 30 to 70%, cover 19 hectares of vineyards. These push themselves close to the river bank and benefit from the reflection of light and heat. The soils consist of deep, skeleton-rich, weathered shell limestone marl with clayey fine soil. The main varieties cultivated here are Riesling and Silvaner, as well as Domina, Gewürztraminer and Müller-Thurgau. Shares in the vineyard are, for example, the Arnold Wilhelm, Bürgerspital, Göbel Martin, Juliusspital, Reiss Christian, Schmitts Kinder, Trockene Schmitts, Staatlicher Hofkeller Würzburg and Weingut Am Stein.
