Herrenberg - Limestone

As one of the best-known locations in the Palatinate, the Ungsteiner Herrenberg is home to renowned producers. As early as 1828, it was awarded the title "outstanding"; in the course of the Royal Bavarian Land Assessment and is therefore considered a "great growth" location. As expected, it therefore produces high-quality, mineral-elegant wines with a filigree fruit spectrum and great aging potential.

Weilberg - Terra Rossa

The Ungsteiner Weilberg, popularly known as "Roterde" because of its striking color, is one of the most traditional sites in the area. The favorable exposure and the fertile soil were already an obvious sign of a top-quality location in Roman times, so that vines were planted here. Today the Weilberg is classified as a "great growth" site. He constantly brings opulent, lasting wines with spicy, often tropical fruit aromas.

Nussriegel - Coloured Sandstone

The Ungstein Nussriegel is considered to be one of the best locations in the picturesque wine village of Ungstein. It is characterized by its frost-proof location directly adjacent to the German Wine Route. The soil is very heterogeneous and brings in parts red sandstone, alluvial sands and partly also clay soil with limestone shares.


These soil structures make the wines from the nut bar particularly fruity and extremely harmonious in their acidity.


The Nussriegel site got its name from a few characteristic walnut trees that were still to be found in the rows of vineyards many years ago.


Today, the Ungsteiner Nussriegel is classified as VDP.ERSTE LAGE.
