Cadastral situation

Smallest geographical unit of wine-growing area in Germany with protected status of origin. The wine-law term cadastral location is defined in the same way as the single vineyard location (the next largest wine-law unit of area), but with a slightly different status. The origin of each cadastral layer is always a Gewann, but by far not all of the many hundreds of Gewannen are classified as cadastral layers. In the course of the land consolidation in 1971, many such small units were combined into a single layer. The cadastral layers classified in the Gewanne and the cadastral layers classified from them are often characterised by their particular microclimate and soil or layer-specific character. The picture shows the single vineyard Eselshaut in the municipality of Mußbach (cultivation area Pfalz) with the three Gewannen Am Rothenstein, Beim Steinernen Bild and Dreißig Morgen, which are registered as cadastral sites.
