Scheuerberg

Single location in the municipality of Neckarsulm (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German Württemberg growing region. Documentary evidence shows that wine has been cultivated here since the end of the 13th century. The name is derived from the shape of the vineyard, which is reminiscent of a barn roof. Scheuer is the Swabian term for barn. The vineyards, which are oriented from west to south-east and have a gradient of 10 to 50%, comprise 112 hectares of vineyards. The heavy soils consist mainly of weathered keuper and reed sandstone with a high lime content. Due to its wedge-shaped orientation, the Scheuerberg represents a weather divide. For this reason, storms in particular pass it on their way into the Odenwald or the Weinsberg valley. The red wine varieties Spätburgunder, Trollinger and Lemberger, as well as Riesling are cultivated here. The vineyards Drautz-Able and Friedauer, for example, have a share in the location.
