Gundheimer Mandelbrunnen (Almond Fountain)
Almond or coat? Either way, definitely white wine
Such a melodious name, so much uncertainty in naming! The site was first mentioned in a document in 1581 with the name "am Mandelborn". But is the name really based on an almond tree? Today, figs and lemons grow in Wonnegau and almond trees blossom. But in the 16th century this was rather unlikely. Another interpretation could be the word "Mantel". This does not mean coat, but pine tree. And why the term "Born"? It stands for well or spring. White grape varieties, such as Riesling, Silvaner, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer or Kerner, grow here on loess soil.
