single vineyard in the municipality of Trittenheim ( Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. The small vineyard, which is oriented from west to southwest and has a slope of 25 to 60%, covers only half a hectare of vineyards on stony slate weathered soil. Only the Riesling variety is cultivated here. The site is solely owned by the Milz Josef winery. There is another single vineyard called Leiterchen in the municipality of Nittel in the Upper Moselle area. The picture shows the municipality of Trittenheim with the single vineyard sites Altärchen, Apotheke, Felsenkopf and Leiterchen in the Großlage Michelsberg.
I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.Dr. Edgar Müller
