single vineyard in the municipality of Goseck (Neuenberg Castle area) in the German wine-growing region of Saale-Unstrut. The first vines were planted here by the Benedictines as early as 1080. The vineyard then became the property of the Counts of Scxhloss Goseck and finally came into state ownership in 1903. At that time, the mountain lay fallow due to the phylloxera disaster and was only cultivated again in the course of graft vine research. The southwest-facing terraced vineyard with 40 to 45% slope covers 3.5 hectares of vineyards on soils of sandy loam on weathered red sandstone. The grape varieties cultivated here include Riesling and Pinot Blanc. The vineyard is solely owned by the Kloster Pforta wine estate.

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.
