A single vineyard designation that occurs several times in Germany, derived from a former princely estate. There is a Kurfürstenberg in Waldrach (Mosel).
The east to south-southwest facing vineyards with 30 to 60% slopes cover 94 hectares of vines on shell limestone and Keuper soils. They are mainly planted with the varieties Silvaner, Riesling and Pinot Noir. Shares are held, for example, by the wineries Fröhlich Clemens, Fröhlich Michael, Sauer Horst, acid Rainer, Schäffer Egon, Weingut Am Lump and Zur Schwane.
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.Andreas Essl
