There are individual sites of this name in Germany, in addition to the two listed below in the municipalities of Graach (Moselle), Impflingen (Palatinate) and the Maximin Grünhaus - Winery of the von Schubert family - which is solely owned by the Maximin Grünhaus family.

Hörstein - Franconia (Mainviereck)

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

Zell-Weierbach - Baden (Ortenau)

The vineyards, which are oriented from southeast to west-northwest and have a gradient of 20 to 40%, comprise 83 hectares of vineyards on loamy loess and granite weathered soils. The Freiherr von und zu Franckenstein and Schloss Ortenberg wineries and the members of the WG Zeller Abtsberg Winegrowers have shares in the site.
