Kahlenberg (Großlage Austria)

The Kahlenberg is a 484-metre-high elevation in the 19th district of Döbling of Wien (Austria). During the second Turkish siege in 1683, the city was liberated from the Entsatzhee from here, which is commemorated by the Josefskirche. He gave the name to Vienna Großlage. In the neighbourhood to the immediate south is the large vineyard Nußberg, which includes the vineyards of the two cadastral municipalities Nußdorf and Heiligenstadt with, for example, the vineyards Burgstall, Gaisruck, Mitterberg, Rothen, Schweizerberg, Weisleiten and Zither, and to the west the cadastral municipality Grinzing with, for example, the vineyard Pisenkopf.

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.
