single vineyard in the municipality of Haardt (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The south to east facing vineyard at 180 metres above sea level covers 15 hectares of vineyards. Shares in the Bürgergarten site are held, for example, by the Kaub Karl-Heinz, Weegmüller and Weik Bernd wineries. The "Breumel in den Mauern" parcel with a 5% slope covers 2.6 hectares of vineyards. Until 1971, this was an independent single vineyard and there are now efforts to classify it as such again. The parcel is enclosed by a three-metre-high sandstone wall, which provides protection from the winds and creates a special microclimate. The plateau-like parcel once belonged to the bailiwick of the "Winzina" castle complex above and is presumably named after one of its former cultivators (castle bailiffs). The deep soil consists of red sandstone with deposits of loess loam. The Riesling variety is cultivated here. The Müller-Catoir winery is the sole owner of the parcel.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
