single vineyard

Designation (also Lage) for the second smallest vineyard unit in Germany as the geographically protected origin of a wine. Single vineyard designations are prescribed for all German wine-growing areas. Since 2014, it has been possible to have smaller areas within a single vineyard, which can also be cross-locational, entered in the vineyard register as a cadastral site (now the smallest unit of area), which is also used by individual wineries. Although it is not compulsory to indicate the single vineyard on the bottle label, it is relatively common in Germany for quality wines. The next larger area units are Großlage (with mostly several single vineyards), area (with one or several large vineyards) and cultivation area (with one or several areas). The picture shows the municipality of Trittenheim in the Mosel growing region in the Bernkastel area with the four single vineyard sites Altärchen, Apotheke, Felsenkopf and Leiterchen in the Großlage Michelsberg
