Single location in the municipality of Walporzheim in the German growing region of Ahr. In 2017 the neighbouring Domlay site was abandoned and the flat part of it (Heckenbachtal area) was added to the Himmelchen site. The name is derived on the one hand from the "all-spanning sky" or on the other hand from the "heavenly wine quality". It is an 80% flat valley site, 20% is slightly ascending. The vineyards cover 27 hectares at an altitude of 110 metres above sea level, but only 10 hectares of which are planted. The soils consist of slightly stony, sandy loam with terraced gravel. MainlyPinot Noir, Dornfelder and early Pinot Noir are cultivated. The Kriechel Peter and Sonnenberg wineries, for example, as well as the winegrowers of the Walporzheim wine manufactory, have shares in the site.
