Popular single vineyard and large vineyard name in Germany. In addition to those described in detail below, there are single vineyard sites of this name in the municipalities of Kindenheim (Pfalz), Weisenheim am Sand (Rheingau), Weinstein and Worms (Rheinhessen). Large vineyards named Burgweg exist in the wine-growing regions of Franconia, Nahe and Rheingau.

Bodenheim - Rheinhessen(Nierstein)

This vineyard was first mentioned in a document in 1364 under the name "Uf dem Burgwege" (but it is probably a prescription for "Bergwege"). The south and east-facing vineyards with a slope of 10 to 25% lie at an altitude of 90 to 140 metres above sea level. They cover 40 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of loess with sandy to clayey sloping loam. The varieties Silvaner, Riesling, Scheurebe and Pinot Noir are cultivated here. The Kühling-Gillot and Liebrecht wineries, 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.
