single vineyard in the municipality of Schwaigern (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German Württemberg wine-growing region. It was first mentioned in 1385; the name refers to the clearing that took place at that time. The parcels at the foot of the slope belong to the neighbouring Grafenberg vineyard. The vineyard, which faces south to south-southwest at an altitude of 260 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope of 30 to 60%, covers six hectares of vineyards. The soil consists of gypsum keuper with intercalations of coloured marl in the upper area and sandstone in the area of the slope debris. The Lemberger and Riesling varieties are cultivated here. The vineyard is the sole property of the Graf Neipperg wine estate
