Vineyard area

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

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
