single vineyard in the municipality of Hattenheim in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The name goes back to the "Edelknecht Engilmann" of Hattenheim, who, according to documentary evidence, donated his vineyards to the Eberbach monastery in 1321. The south to southwest-facing vineyards, with slopes ranging from 10 to 40%, cover almost 18 hectares of vineyards. Occasionally, there are old natural stone walls here to enclose the vineyards, which also store heat and release it to the vines at night. The soils consist mainly of deep loess and loess loam with portions of marl. They have a good water storage capacity. The Riesling variety is mainly cultivated here. The wineries Bausch Hans, Georg Müller Stiftung, Hessische Staatsweingüter and Ress Balthasar, 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.
