single vineyard in the municipality of Ruppertsberg (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. It was mentioned in documents in 1673 as "Reuderpfad". The name does not refer to horsemen, but to the Latin "Rutarius" as a member of a pack and probably refers to a Roman army trail. The south to east facing flat vineyards at 130 metres above sea level with 5 to 15% slopes cover 77 hectares of vineyards on loamy sand and sandy loam with red sandstone and limestone boulders. They have good water storage capacity. The historic site was much smaller and includes the areas directly bordering the wine road leading to Neustadt to the west. The best plots cover five hectares and are enclosed by walls. The Riesling, Pinot Noir and Gewürztraminer varieties are cultivated here. The wineries Acham-Magin, Bassermann-Jordan, Bergdolt St. Lamprecht, Christmann Arnold, Hanewald-Schwerdt, Kimich, Reichsrat von Buhl, Reinhardt Stefan, Sandwiese, Siben, Spindler Heinrich and Weingut von Winning, for example, have shares in the site.
