single vineyard in the municipality of Stetten (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. It was first mentioned in 1650. The name is related to the nearby stone pit, where stone blasting was carried out by "Pulvermächern" (old term for blasters). The vineyards, some of which are terraced and face south to southwest, are 330 to 360 metres above sea level and have a slope of up to 60%. They cover 38 hectares of vineyards on Keuper weathered rock with sandy loam deposits. They are located in a wind-protected side valley of the Rems and surround the Yburg ruins. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. The wineries Aldinger Gerhard, Beurer, Escher Ottmar, Haidle Karl, Haidle Wolfgang, Kuhnle Werner, Medinger and Singer-Bader, for example, have shares in the site.
