single vineyard in the municipality of Hallgarten in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. Most likely, the Cistercian monks of the Eberbach monastery gave the name in honour of the Holy Virgin Mary. The vineyards, which are oriented from southeast to southwest at an altitude of 170 to 210 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 15%, cover almost 70 hectares of vineyards. The large area was created in the course of land consolidation in 1971 by merging several small vineyards. The best area is the former Original Jungfer, which lies in a conical depression and is thus very well protected from the wind. The easily heated, deep soils consist of sandy loess loam and brown earth with a high quartzite content. The Riesling variety is mainly cultivated here. The Ankermühle, Bibo & Runge, Fürst Löwenstein, Georg Müller Stiftung, Nikolai Heinz, Kühn Peter Jakob, Prinz Fred and Rothenbach Fritz wineries, for example, have shares in the site. There are other single vineyards with the name Jungfer in Hattenheim (Rheingau) and Lauffen (Württemberg).
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
