single vineyard in the municipality of Lorchhausen in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name, derived from Middle High German, has no religious background and has nothing to do with the pleasant state after drinking wine. Rather, it refers prosaically to the sal-willows (willow plants) that like to climb up walls. The southwest-facing vineyards, with slopes ranging from 10 to 50%, cover 23 hectares of vines. The stony soils consist of loam with deep, chalky loess. Here, mainly Riesling is cultivated. Shares are held, for example, by the wineries Kesseler and König Klaus & Ursula. There is another single vineyard called Seligmacher in the municipality of Arzberg (Palatinate).
