Cultivation area

Designation for the 13 largest geographically defined and origin-protected territorial units for wines in Germany. These are divided hierarchically into areas, large vineyards, individual vine yards and cadastral vineyards (Gewanne). In Austria, the term " Weinbaugebiet " is used instead of " Anbaugebiet ". See also under Origin and Quality System and a list of area-relevant keywords under Vine Area.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
