single vineyard in the municipality of Verrenberg (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. It was first mentioned in a document in 1260. The village of the same name was named after the location. The vineyards, which are mainly south-southeast facing and south to southwest facing in a crescent shape in the western area, are 255 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope of 10 to 45% and cover 19 hectares of vineyards. The deep loamy-clay soils consist of gypsum keuper with occasional shell limestone. The Butzen (Kopf) vineyard is considered particularly privileged. Here, the varieties Lemberger, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Trollinger are cultivated. The vineyard is the sole property of the Fürst zu Hohenlohe-Oehringen wine estate.

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.
