Former oil mill or Jesus under the olive tree?
Another popular name for single vineyards in Germany, the Ölberg. The site in Grolsheim was first mentioned in a document in 1727 with the name "auff der öhlbach". It is assumed that an old oil mill once stood here. But it could also have a biblical reference: Jesus is said to have stayed several times on the Mount of Olives to the east of Jerusalem. Olive trees grew there, hence its name. Olive trees do not (yet) grow in Grolsheim, but a variety of grapevines do. A shelter, a table of wine and a vineyard swing invite you to linger.
