In addition to the two vineyards listed in detail below, there are individual vineyards of this name in Germany in the municipalities of Graach (Moselle), Impflingen (Palatinate) and in the solely owned vineyard of the Maximin Grünhaus - Weingut der Familie von Schubert.

Hörstein - Franconia (Main quadrangle)

The Benedictine monastery of Seligenstadt, founded by Einhard (770-840), cultivated vines here as early as the 10th century. During a visit in 2006, Pope Benedict XVI was served a Riesling from this vineyard. Today, the vineyards are actually parcels of land from the Großlage Reuschberg, which may be marketed under the single vineyard name Abtsberg. The west-facing vineyard with a 20 to 30% slope covers six hectares of vineyards on soils with mica slate, gneiss and granite. Mainly Riesling is cultivated here. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the wineries Schloßweingut Becker and Staatlicher Hofkeller Würzburg.
