Schlossberg (single vineyard Germany)

A common name for a single location in Germany. It is usually derived from a manorial building (which may no longer exist) on the top of a hill.

Achkarren/Oberrotweil - Baden (Kaiserstuhl)

The upper part below the ruins of Höhingen Castle was converted into vineyards in 1819 by blasting the steep rock faces. The vineyards, which are in the form of four amphitheatres facing west to south-east, but mainly south-facing, at an altitude of 190 to 320 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 20 to 80%, cover 80 hectares of vineyards. The very large and therefore heterogeneous site is divided into the four areas of Böhmischberg, Büchsenberg, Schlossberg and Schneckenberg. The soils consist of dark, weathered skeleton-rich volcanic rock with a partly artificially applied loess layer. In some areas, the soil is so poor that the vine stakes had to be set in concrete for stability. The main varieties grown here are Riesling, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Silvaner. The Augit, Dr. Heger, Freiherr von Gleichenstein, Keller Franz, St. Remigius, Wagner Peter, Waßmer Fritz, Wassmer Martin and Winzergenossenschaft Achkarren wineries, for example, have shares in the site.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
