single vineyard in the municipality of Großkarlbach in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. It is an ancient site that was abandoned or incorporated into single vineyard Burgweg with the 1970 wine law and the 1971 land consolidation (like so many others). There it was considered a prime piece of land or the best parcel. A new legal situation made it possible to return old historically occupied sites. In 2014, it was therefore re-entered into the vineyard register as an independent site. The south-facing vineyards at 125 to 135 metres above sea level consist of heavy clay soils over overlying limestone rock, interspersed with countless limestones. They are similar to the soil type in the Burgundian Côte d'Or area. On the 10 hectares of vineyards, the varieties Pinot Noir and Riesling are cultivated. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the Knipser and Kuhn Philipp wineries.
The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!Dominik Trick
