single vineyard in the municipality of Bensheim in the German wine-growing region of Hessische Bergstrasse. The south to southwest facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 15 to 30% cover 30 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of weathered granite with a weak humus layer and loess loam, with sandy-grassy soils on the upper slope and granite below the surface. The Bergsträßer Winzer and Griesel & Compagnie, for example, have shares in the site.
