Biengarten

Single vineyard site in the municipality of Gimmeldingen (Neustadt/Weinstraße, area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate. The name indicates a beekeeping, which is still practised today. In the Royal Bavarian Soil Evaluation of 1828, the site received a top rating. The vineyards, which are oriented to the east-northeast to south-southeast in the form of an amphitheatre at an altitude of 150 to 220 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 15 to 35%, comprise 20 hectares of partly steeply terraced vineyards. To the west, the location is protected from cold winds by the Haardt Mountains. The soils consist of red sandstone scree with slight amounts of lime marl. Especially the Riesling variety is cultivated here. The Christmann Arnold, Ohler Johann, Weik Bernd and Ziegler August vineyards, for example, have their share of the site.
