single vineyard in the municipality of Monzingen in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. It was considerably expanded during the land consolidation in 1971; the best parcels are those in the old core area. The south to southwest facing vineyards at 160 to 240 metres above sea level with slopes ranging from 0 to 40% cover 64 hectares of vineyards. The red slate weathered soils are interspersed with pebbles, quartzite, basaltic boulders and red clay and are gravelly to sandy on the steep slopes. This is also the location of the small cadastral vineyard Auf der Ley, a small part of which extends into the neighbouring single vineyard Halenberg. Riesling, Dornfelder and Müller-Thurgau are the main grapes cultivated here. The wineries Bamberger Heiko, Emrich-Schönleber, Schäfer-Fröhlich and Schauß Erich have shares in the vineyard.

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.
