Southeasternmost spur of the Manhartsberg near the municipality of Zöbing in the wine-growing region of Kamptal (Lower Austria). The elevation is only separated by the Grub vineyard and is in the vicinity of the famous Zöbing Heiligenstein. On the Gaisberg there is a south-southeast facing vineyard (Lage) of the same name. This consists largely of weathered rock with a brown earth layer. In the upper part there are terraces on predominantly mica-slate soils. In Austria this is often referred to as "Urgesteins-Boden". The lower, eastern area has a sandy loess layer and is partly at risk of frost and drought. On the Gaisberg, mainly Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Neuburger are cultivated.

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.
