single vineyard in the municipality of Heilbronn (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. 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 slopes of 10 to 40%, cover about 325 hectares of vineyards. Due to its size, it is a very inhomogeneous site. The soil was formed by the weathering of calcareous mudstone of the gypsum basement. The characteristic gypsum deposits were so thick in some places that they were even mined in the past. The Drautz-Able, G.A. Heinrich, Kistenmacher-Hengerer, Kurz-Wagner and Schäfer-Heinrich wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
