Designation (also steep slope) for a particularly steep vineyard or vineyard area with a slope of 45 degrees (i.e. 100%) and more, which also requires special cultivation. Very often such vineyards are laid out in terraces and, due to the steepness, may have to be cultivated with monorack tracks. See in detail under the keyword steepest vineyard (with many pictures of steep slopes).
