single vineyard in the municipality of Ahrweiler in the German wine-growing region of Ahr. The Calvarienberg convent school is embedded in it. It was founded in 1838 as the motherhouse of the Ursulines after the Franciscan monastery, which was founded in 1630, was secularised in 1803. The name of the camp is derived from the Ursuline monastery garden. The steep west-facing vineyards at an altitude of 100 to 180 metres above sea level cover 24 hectares of vineyards, of which only nine hectares are planted with vines. There are different types of soil, ranging from clay slopes to greywacke, loess and basalt. The Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), as well as the Blauer Portugieser, Riesling and Müller-Thurgau varieties are cultivated to 70%. The Burggarten, Lingen Peter, Maibachfarm, Riske Erwin and Weingut Sonnenberg wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
