The Ölberg site in Königsbach is just on the Deidesheim side of Steffen Christmann's grand cru vineyard, Idig, and is often referred to as its little brother. The slope faces southeast. The ground is dominated by limestone and sandstone. Its altitude and relative proximity to the Palatinate Forest leaves it well placed to catch the first rays of sun in the morning, then to cool off in the shadow of the mountains after hot days. All this leads to dense, complex wines with great minerality.
