Klosterberg (single vineyard Germany)

Along with Altenberg, Herrenberg, Kapellenberg, Kirchberg, Rosenberg and Sonnenberg, this is one of the most common single-vineyard designations in Germany. It occurs a total of 30 times. The name is derived from the fact that many vineyards were once owned and cultivated by various Roman Catholic monasteries or the church.

Ostritz - Saxony

The south to south-east facing vineyard with a slope of 15 to 40% covers just under one hectare of vineyards. The medium-textured weathered soil with granite components is partly interspersed with sandstone and clay layers. It is the most easterly vineyard in Germany.
