single vineyard in the municipality of Erbach in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was first mentioned in documents in 1211. The name is derived from the Old High German word "michil" or the Middle High German "michel" for "large plot of land". The second syllable "Mark" was used in the language of past centuries as a synonym for mountain. The south to southwest facing vineyards with slopes ranging from 10 to 30% cover 54 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of deep, partly gravelly loess and in some areas heavy marl, which are well interwoven with humus. The Riesling variety is the main variety grown here. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the Baron Knyphausen, Lamm-Jung, Nikolai Heinz, Oetinger and cooperative members of the Winzer von Erbach.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
