Single vineyard designation in Germany that refers to an elongated shape of the vineyard.

Martinsthal - Rheingau

The vineyards, which lie above the village and face southwest-south, with slopes ranging from 10 to 45%, cover 19 hectares of vineyards. The medium to deep phyllite-slate soils in the western part of the vineyard, with increasing amounts of loess loam in the eastern part, have a good water retention capacity. The best plots are in the middle of the slope. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. The Diefenhardt'sches Weingut and Faust Karl-Werner wineries, for example, have shares in the site.

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.
