single vineyard in the municipality of Stetten (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. The unusual name goes back to a lady-in-waiting who resided in Stetten in the 17th century. She used cunning to hide her pronounced fondness for wine. At that time, it was customary to soften bread that had become dry with a little water. The lady in question had her jug filled with her favourite wine instead of water. This did not remain hidden for long, however, and so the vineyard from which the wine came was given its name. The southwest-facing vineyard with a 15 to 50% slope covers almost three hectares of vines on reed sandstone and Keuper. The terraced rows of vines lie below the Yburg ruins, which are visible from afar. Only Riesling is grown here. The site was acquired by the House of Württemberg in 1666 and is the sole property of the Herzog von Württemberg wine estate.

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.
