Vineyard in the municipality of Wiltingen (Saar region) in the German Moselle wine-growing region. It should not be confused with the Scharzberg vineyard. Next to the Würzburger Stein (Franconia), it is the most famous vineyard in Germany. In 1971, the Scharzhofberg was declared a district of Wiltingen. In terms of wine law, it is not a single vineyard, but a single-vineyard-free district. On the bottle label, the name of the municipality is omitted and only the designation "Scharzhofberg" or "Scharzhofberger" is given. The south-facing vineyards cover 28 hectares with slopes ranging from 30 to 60%. The soil consists of weathered slate with a very high rock content as well as ferruginous, clayey parts. Only the Riesling variety is cultivated here.
