single vineyard in the municipalities of Schnait/Beutelsbach (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. It was first mentioned in a document as early as 1600 and bore the name "Schnaiter Halde" until the land consolidation in 1971. The vineyards, which face west to southeast at an altitude of 300 to 350 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 40%, cover 76 hectares of vineyards. They are very well protected from the wind by the surrounding Schurwald forest. The soils consist of Keuper, sand and coloured marl. Here, mainly the varieties Trollinger (Schiava Grossa) and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) are cultivated. The wineries Ellwanger Jürgen, Haidle Karl and Schnaitmann, for example, have shares in the site.

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.
