single vineyard in the municipality of Boppard in the German wine-growing region of the Middle Rhine. There was a documentary mention of "in der weingruben" as early as the 16th century. It is part of the Bopparder Hamm vineyard, which is also a district of Boppard with the same name. The site begins in the mountain incision through which the Petersbach flows and stretches along at an altitude of 160 metres above the three sites of Mandelstein, Feuerlay and Ohlenberg. The soils consist of different types of slate; above the Mandelstein, for example, this is a siliceous slate. The western section, which is considered better, with a slope of up to 50%, faces southwest. The rest, with a 45% slope, faces southwest to south. Riesling is the main grape variety cultivated on this site. The Heilig Grab vineyard, for example, has a share.
