Sections of the Permian (Rotliegend period) emerge around Nierstein, in which animal tracks 290 million years old can be recognized. Above Nierstein is a steep slope called red clay and sandstone, which extends from the northern Nackenheim to the western Schwabsburg. Due to the porosity of the rock, grapevines planted here are particularly deeply rooted, which produces very mineral wines.
