single vineyard in the municipality of Neckarsulm (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. There is documentary evidence that wine has been grown here since the end of the 13th century. The name is derived from the shape of the site, which is reminiscent of a barn roof; Scheuer is the Swabian term for barn. The vineyards, which are oriented from west to southeast with slopes ranging from 10 to 50%, cover 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 mainly pass it and head for the Odenwald or the Weinsberg Valley. The red wine varieties Spätburgunder, Trollinger and Lemberger, as well as Riesling, are cultivated here. The Drautz-Able and Friedauer wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
