The vineyard is located on the western brim of the town of Deidesheim, in the center of the Palatinate wine growing area. The name of the vineyard Kalkofen is related to an old limestone-brick oven in the middle-ages. This indicates a high content of limestone in
this part of the vineyards, which offers a lot of minerality to the vines.
The exposition of the vineyard is east, south-east, which guarantees a lot of direct sun influence from the early morning to the late afternoon.
