Vineyard area

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