single vineyard in the municipality of Kleinbottwar (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg, which is embedded in the Oberer Berg site. It has been known since the 16th century. The name refers to the high quality of the wines. The south to southwest facing vineyard at 230 to 290 metres above sea level with a 35 to 60% slope covers 5.5 hectares of vines. The soil, which is rich in clay and loam, especially in the upper part, consists of Keuper and Buntmergel. Riesling is the main variety cultivated here. The Adelmann winery is the sole owner of the site.

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.
