Along with Altenberg, Herrenberg, Kapellenberg, Klosterberg, Rosenberg and Sonnenberg, the designation is one of the most common single-vineyard designations in Germany. It occurs around 50 times in 8 of the 13 growing regions (see then last paragraph). This makes Kirchberg the second most common single vineyard name in Germany. The reason can be seen in the many vineyard possessions of the church over the centuries.
The vineyards, which face south-southwest and, in a small section, southeast, with slopes ranging from 10 to 35%, cover about 90 hectares of vines on shell limestone soils. Müller-Thurgau and Schwarzriesling, for example, are cultivated here. Members of the WG Tauberfranken, for example, have shares in the site.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
