Stone hump

Single vineyard site in the municipality of Laumersheim (Mittelhaardt/Deutsche Weinstrasse area) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate. The site was first mentioned in documents as early as 1345 under the name "uff dem Mandelberg". Mandelberg was also the official designation of the vineyard until 2009. One particularly high-quality plot of land is called Steinbuckel; this is now the official new designation of the entire vineyard since 2010. The vineyards, facing south to south-east at an altitude of 130 metres above sea level with a slope of 10 to 15%, cover 35 hectares of vineyard. The soils consist of limestone rocks with a thick layer of loess and occasional sandy loam. The Riesling variety in particular is cultivated here. The Knipser, Kuhn Philipp, Jesuitenhof and Zelt Mario wineries, for example, have their share of the site.
