Altenberg (Einzellage Deutschland)

Along with Herrenberg, Kapellenberg, Kirchberg, Klosterberg, Rosenberg and Sonnenberg, the designation is one of the most common single vineyard designations in Germany. The name is derived from the fact that in earlier times, winegrowers often concentrated on the best vineyards close to the village in their old age and usually kept them until they died.

Kanzem - Moselle (Saar)

The south-southeast facing vineyards at an altitude of 145 to 260 metres with a slope of 50 to 85% cover 19 hectares of vines. The single vineyard Hörecker is included as a small enclave. On weathered greenish-grey slate soils with clayey-silty, reddish iron-rich fine soil, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the Bischöfliche Weingüter Trier, Mertes Johann Peter, Othegraven, Reinert, Van Volxem and Vereinigte Hospitien.
