A common name for a single vineyard in the German-speaking world, usually derived from a vineyard run or owned by a monastery (monks). See also under Mönchberg.
The south-southwest facing vineyards with 20 to 30% slopes cover 44 hectares of vines on shell limestone soils. Members of the WG Weingärtner Markelsheim own shares in the site.
There are other single vineyards named Mönchsberg in the Württemberg municipalities of Bad Mergentheim and Elpersheim (Kocher-Jagst-Tauber), as well as Brackenheim and Dürrenzimmern (Württembergisch Unterland).
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
