single vineyard in the municipality of Dernau in the German wine-growing region of Ahr. The name is derived from the former ownership by the Catholic parish church of Dernau. The steep vineyards, which face exactly south, cover ten hectares of vineyards with a slope of up to 60% at an altitude of 125 to 220 metres above sea level. On the greywacke and slate weathered soils, the red wine varieties Blauer Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), Blauer Portugieser, Frühburgunder and Regent, as well as the white wine varieties Riesling, Kerner, Müller-Thurgau and Optima are cultivated. It is worth mentioning that a former bunker of the German government is hidden in the depths of the mountain. The producers Ahr Winzer eG, Bertram Julia, Heiner & Kreuzberg, Kreuzberg, Meyer-Näkel, Riske Erwin and Riske Reinhold, 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.
