Frequently occurring designation for vineyards in Germany. The name refers to an existing or former ecclesiastical property or a bishopric.

Großheubach - Franconia (Main quadrangle)

The name refers to ecclesiastical, prince-bishop and electoral-Mainz influences as well as the Engelberg monastery towering over the village. The south-west to south-southeast facing vineyards with slopes of up to 60% cover 53 hectares of vines on red sandstone soils. They are partly terraced with dry stone walls. Here, mainly the varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir are cultivated. The wineries Fürst Rudolf, Staatlicher Hofkeller Würzburg, Steintal and Wengerter Rainer, for example, have shares in the site.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
