single vineyard in the municipality of Bad-Cannstadt (Remstal-Stuttgart area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. The name is derived from the Zuckerberg, which stretches along the Neckar River. The southeast- and southwest-facing vineyards at 190 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope of 50 to 70% (35°) in the terraced areas and 10% at the flat foot of the slope cover 30 hectares of vineyards. The site is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany. The soils consist of deep limestone weathering with shell limestone rocks in the subsoil. The site is divided into two vineyards, "Zuckerberg" on the right bank of the Neckar in the southwest and "Mühlhäuser Berg" on the left bank of the Neckar in the southeast. Trollinger (Schiava Grossa), Muscat-Trollinger (Muscat d'Hamburg), Lemberger (Blaufränkisch) and Riesling are cultivated here. Shares are held, for example, by the wineries Siegloch, Weingärtner Bad Cannstadt and Weingut der Stadt Stuttgart.
For my many years of work as an editor with a wine and culinary focus, I always like to inform myself about special questions at Wine lexicon. Spontaneous reading and following links often leads to exciting discoveries in the wide world of wine.Dr. Christa Hanten
