Along with Altenberg, Herrenberg, Kapellenberg, Klosterberg, Rosenberg and Sonnenberg, the name is one of the most common designations for individual sites in Germany. It occurs about 50 times in 8 of the 13 growing areas (see last paragraph). This makes Kirchberg the second most common name for single vineyard sites in Germany. The reason for this can be seen in the many vineyard holdings of the church over the centuries.
The vineyards, which face south-southwest and, in a small section, south-east, with a slope gradient of 10 to 35%, comprise around 90 hectares of vineyards on shell limestone soils. Müller-Thurgau and black Riesling, for example, are cultivated here. Members of the WG Tauberfranken, for example, have shares in the site.
