Schloss Wackerbarth

In the German-speaking world, a common term for the entire property of a winery with buildings and vineyards. This does not necessarily mean that such a building (castle) actually exists. This corresponds roughly to the French terms Château or Domaine. Many area designations (Bereich, Großlage, single vineyard or Riede) or wineries often include "castle" in their name for marketing reasons. See also under producer bottling (Schlossabfüllung).

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.
