single vineyard on the Tüllinger Berg in the municipality of Weil am Rhein (Markgräflerland area) in the German growing region of Baden. A small part of it is located on the bordering Swiss territory and is called "Schlipfer" here. The name is derived from a large landslide in 1758, in which the entire slope slid down (in Alemannic "schlipfte"). Even today, landslide-like movements occur, especially during rain, due to clay-covered sandstone slabs in the subsoil. The south-facing vineyards, some of which are very steep, cover 26 hectares of vineyards on calcareous clay and loam soils with sandstone slabs in the subsoil. The many deep springs ensure a good supply of water for the vines even in dry years. The very sunny site is also popularly called "Sunneberg". Here, mainly Pinot Noir is grown, as well as Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wineries Bezirkskellerei Markgräflerland, Schneider Claus and Winzergenossenschaft Haltingen, for example, have shares in the site.
The wein.plus encyclopaedia is a comprehensive, well-researched reference work. Available anytime and anywhere, it has become an indispensable part of teaching, used by students and myself alike. Highly recommended!Dominik Trick
