There are many designations for areas planted with vines in the wine-growing countries. In the German-speaking countries, vineyard, vineyard, wengert, winger (especially in Germany) or vineyard (especially in Austria) are common. This can be a relatively small area (owned by a single owner), but just as well a very large area shared by many owners. It does not necessarily have to be a contiguous area planted with vines. If it is fragmented, it is called a litter vineyard. In the case of a vineyard, despite the part of the name "berg", it does not necessarily have to be a slope with a more or less steep inclination, but is often used in a romanticising way, often also for flat areas. The picture shows the Zieregg vineyard from the Manfred Tement winery in southern Styria (Austria):
