single vineyard in the municipality of Stuttgart-Untertürkheim (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. It adjoins the Herzogenberg vineyard. Wine has been grown here since the 9th century. The southwest to south-facing vineyard at 240 to 270 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 20% covers ten hectares of vineyards in the middle of the Stuttgart valley basin. The soil consists of gypsum keuper with gypsum inclusions and clayey loam. It is a former gypsum quarry that was planted with vines from the early 1970s. The Trollinger (Schiava Grossa), Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varieties are cultivated here. It is monopolistically owned by the Aldinger Gerhard winery.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
