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 connected to the nearby stone pit, where "Pulvermächern" (old term for blasters) used to blast stones. The partly terraced south to south-west facing vineyards at 330 to 360 metres above sea level with slopes of up to 60% cover 38 hectares of vines on Keuper weathered rock with deposits of sandy loam. They are located in a wind-protected side valley of the Rems and surround the Yburg ruins. The main vineyard here is Riesling. The wineries Aldinger Gerhard, Beurer, Escher Ottmar, Haidle Karl, Haidle Wolfgang, Kuhnle Werner, Medinger and Singer-Bader, for example, have shares in the site.
