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 partly terraced south to southwest-facing vineyards at an altitude of 330 to 360 metres above sea level with a slope of up to 60% cover 38 hectares of vineyards on Keuper weathered rock with intercalations of sandy loam. 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, Haidle Karl, Haidle Wolfgang, Kuhnle Werner, Medinger and Singer-Bader, for example, have shares in the site.
