Popular single-vineyard designation in the German Moselle wine-growing region, where it occurs six times in the municipalities of Brauneberg, Maring-Noviand, Neumagen, Pommern, Wehlen and Zeltingen. The name refers in part to the sundials found in the vineyards and presumably also to the sunny conditions.

Brauneberg (Bernkastel)

See under Juffer sundial.

Neumagen-Piesport (Bernkastel)

This south-south-west facing vineyard is one of the smallest in Germany. It comprises only 0.38 hectares of vineyards with exclusively Riesling on stony, loamy clay-slate weathered soil. The vineyard is monopolised by the Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt winery.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
