single vineyard in the municipality of Hohenbeilstein (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. They are located below the Staufer castle of Hohenbeilstein, also known as "Langhans". This complex dates back to the 12th century and was never destroyed. The vineyards, which face west-southwest to east and have slopes of 5 to 60%, cover almost ten hectares of vineyards on gypsum-keuper soils. They are partly terraced. The Riesling, Pinot Noir and Lemberger varieties are cultivated here. The vineyard has been the sole property of the Hohenbeilstein estate since 1907.
