single vineyard in the municipality of Markelsheim (Kocher-Jagst-Tauber area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. The south-southwest facing vineyards at 220 to 260 metres above sea level with a slope of 15 to 30% cover around 50 hectares of vineyards on shell limestone soils. The varieties cultivated here are mainly Silvaner, Riesling, Schwarzriesling (Pinot Meunier) and Gutedel (Chasselas). Vintners from the Markelsheim winegrowers' cooperative and Hofmann Alois, for example, have shares in the site. In the Mosel wine-growing region, there is a Großlage called Probstberg.

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.
