single vineyard in the municipality of Malterdingen (Breisgau area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. Cistercian monks from Burgundy in France cultivated Pinot Noir here as early as the 14th century. This is also the origin of the synonym "Malterdinger" for this variety, which is widespread in this region. The vineyards, which are mostly terraced and slope from 10 to 50%, cover an area of 121 hectares. The Atzlenberg, Grabenberg and Wildenstein vineyards are the most important vineyards of this very inhomogeneous site. The soils consist of weathered shell limestone with loess loam and loess and have a yellow-reddish colour due to iron deposits. The Burgundy varieties Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris), Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc) and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) are cultivated here. The wineries Holub Horst, Huber Bernhard and Waßmer Fritz, 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.Andreas Essl
