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).

I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.
