Alte Burg

A single vineyard designation that occurs several times in Germany. In addition to those listed below, there is another such single vineyard in the municipality of Dainbach (Baden).

Köndringen and Mundingen - Baden (Breisgau)

The vineyards, which face north-northwest to north-northeast, but predominantly south, are partly terraced and have slopes of 10 to 40%. They cover 166 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of weathered shell limestone with calcareous loess loam and partly sand. Here, mainly the Pinot varieties are cultivated. The Dreher Florian, Hinn and Huber Bernhard wineries, for example, have shares in the site.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
