Along with Altenberg, Herrenberg, Kirchberg, Klosterberg, Rosenberg and Sonnenberg, the designation is one of the most common single vineyard designations in Germany. A single vineyard named Kapellenberg occurs a total of 37 times in 8 of the 13 German wine-growing regions.
The vineyard, which faces west to southwest and has a slope of 30 to 45%, covers almost seven hectares of vineyards on granite weathered soil. Pinot Noir, Riesling and Müller-Thurgau are cultivated here. The Schwab Josef winery is the sole owner of 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.Andreas Essl
