Single vineyard site in the municipality of Ungstein (Bad Dürkheim, area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region Palatinate. The first vines were already planted here 2,000 years ago by the Romans. The south-southeast facing vineyards at 120 to 180 meters above sea level with a gradient of 5 to 25% comprise 45 hectares of vineyard area. The soils consist of red, clayey loam (red earth), with limestone content and a high proportion of fine earth. A particularly favoured core area of about one hectare is called "red earth". In Weilberg, the Riesling variety is cultivated above all. The Bärenhof, Pfeffingen, Schaefer Karl, Weingut am Nil, Wolf Michael and Zeter Oliver, for example, all have a share in the site.
