Gimmeldinger Biengarten

VDP.ERSTE LAGE

The Gimmeldinger Biengarten stretches over steep terraces and beautiful slopes of the Haardt Mountains between Gimmeldingen and Königsbach along the edge of the forest. It is well protected from cold winds by a slight hollow and is also still used by beekeepers today. The soil of the Biengarten is characterized by tertiary calcareous marl, terra fusca, and lies on the same calcareous reef as the Königsbacher vineyards Idig and Ölberg in the northern neighborhood. The old vines bear only a few loose grapes. This results in an incredibly fine, elegant Pinot Noir every year.
