single vineyard in the municipality of Sulzfeld (Maindreieck area) in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. It is named after the Catholic saint and patron saint of winegrowers, Cyriacus. On the saint's feast day, 8 August 1266, the so-called Battle of Cyriacus, one of the great knightly battles of the Middle Ages, took place in front of the village of Sulzfeld. The southeast to south-facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 10 to 55% cover 75 hectares of vineyards on mainly shell limestone soils with Lettenkeuper in places. The original Cyriakusberg, known as "Berg I" before the land consolidation in 1971, is considered privileged. The Sonnenberg, which was integrated into the Cyriakusberg in that year, was reactivated as an independent single vineyard in 2013. The varieties cultivated include Silvaner, Riesling,Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir. The wineries Brennfleck, Staudt Roland and Zehnthof Familie Luckert, for example, have shares in the site.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
