single vineyard in the municipality of Cleebronn (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German Württemberg wine-growing region. The name comes from the St. Michael's Chapel at 394 metres above sea level, which was built on the Stromberg in early Christian times. There is historical evidence of a 1200-year history of winegrowing here. The chalky Keuper soils are mainly planted with Lemberger (Blaufränkisch), Schwarzriesling,Pinot Noir, Trollinger (Schiava Grossa) and Riesling. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the Dautel winery and members of the Cleebronn-Güglingen winegrowers' association.
As honorary chairman of the Domäne Wachau, it is the easiest and quickest way for me to access the wein.plus encyclopaedia when I have questions. The certainty of receiving well-founded and up-to-date information here makes it an indispensable guide.Hans-Georg Schwarz
