Stiftsberg

Single location in the municipality of Heilbronn (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German Württemberg growing region. It was first mentioned in 1281 as "Stifteberch". The name goes back to the then owner Stift Comburg. The vineyards, which are oriented from north to east and have a slope inclination of 10 to 40%, cover about 325 hectares of vineyard area. Due to its size, it is a very inhomogeneous site. The soil was formed by weathering of calcareous claystone of the Gipskeuper. The characteristic gypsum deposits were so thick in some places that they were even mined in earlier times. Shares in the site are held, for example, by the wineries Drautz-Able, G.A. Heinrich, Kistenmacher-Hengerer, Kurz-Wagner and Schäfer-Heinrich.
