Large location in the municipality of Hörstein (Mainviereck area) in the German growing region of Franconia. It was formed during the land consolidation in 1971 from the former individual sites Käfernberg, Königsberg, Langenberg, Reuschberg, Schwalbenwinkel and Sechsmorgen. Wines from individual parcels may be marketed under the single vineyard designation Abtsberg. The vineyards, which are mostly oriented from west to south-east, as well as on a hilltop in some parcels facing east-southeast with up to 30% slope, cover 36 hectares of vineyard area. The soils consist of primary rock with mica slate and granite with a layer of loess. Müller-Thurgau and Riesling are cultivated here. The Hofgut Hörstein and Höfler Bernd wineries, for example, have a share of the land.
