Chamber (single vineyard Germany)

There are two single vineyards with this appellation in Germany.

Brauneberg - Moselle (Bernkastel)

The single vineyard is located below a rocky head in the middle of the Juffer vineyard. In the 18th century, it was a coveted vineyard, with monasteries and counts fighting over its ownership. The later third US president Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) made an enthusiastic note in his diary during his stay in Europe as US ambassador in 1788: "The 1st quality without any comparison". With only 0.3 hectares of vineyards, this is one of the smallest single vineyards in Germany. The southeast-facing vineyard with a slope of 15 to 65% has a clay-slate weathered soil with some clay. High iron contents in the dark clay slate cause the brown-red colouring. Only the Riesling variety is grown here. The site is solely owned by the Paulinshof Winery.

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.
