Designation for words or terms that have the same meaning/similar meaning but are phonetically different. For example, "Weinhauer", "Weinbauer" and " Winzer" or "Besenwirtschaft", " Buschenschank", " Heckenwirtschaft", "Heuriger " and "Straußwirtschaft" or "Böttcher" and " Küfer" or "Keltern" and " Pressen" or "Vinifikation", "Vinification", "Weinherstellung" and " Weinbereitung " - but also " Keltern". Words with exactly the same meaning are rare, however; there is often a difference in meaning or value. For example, "head and head", "home and home", "picture and painting", "leaf and foliage" as well as "vine and vine".

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
