The name counts beside Altenberg. Herrenberg. chapel hill. Kirchberg. Klosterberg and Rosenberg to the most common single layer designations in Germany. A Sonnenberg comes in almost all growing areas a total of 80 times before, making it by far the most common name. In many other layer names "sun" is included as an ingredient. That's not surprising, but plays as optimal as possible exposition (Sunshine) during the growth cycle of vine an important role.
The oriented south to southeast vineyards with 20 to 30% slope cover 24 hectares of vineyards. The partly skeletal soils consist of loamy sand to clayey loam. Here are mainly the varieties Riesling. Traminer. muscatel. Müller-Thurgau. Cabernet Dorsa. Pinotin and Frühburgunder cultivated. A share of the situation has for example the winery Thuringian Winery Bad Sulza,
The aligned to south-southwest to northeast vineyards with 0 to 40% slope cover 150 hectares of vineyards on gypsum Keuper and reed sandstone floors. The size is a very inhomogeneous location. High-quality areas are south-south-east orientated and sheltered from the wind bath Scabs and stone turnips. A share of the situation has for example the winery Dautel,
The south (from which the name derives) aligned vineyards with 10 to 25% slope cover 78 hectares of vineyards mainly on deep loess and loess clay soils. The best parcels are in the middle section. Here is especially the variety Riesling cultivated, Shares in the situation have for example the two wineries Baron Langwerth von Simmern and HJ Ernst,
The west-facing flat vineyard covers only 0.4 hectares of vineyards on loess and sandy loam. This is Pinot Noir ( Pinot Noir ). The location is the sole property of the winery Neus.
The oriented south to southeast vineyards with 5 to 15% slope cover nearly 120 hectares of vineyards. The soils vary greatly in size due to the enormous size of clay and sands, which are traversed in the upper slopes with shell limestone and hanging debris. Above all, Riesling is grown here. Shares in the situation have for example the wineries Ackermann Frank. Ehrhart. Emil Bauer & sons. Erlenwein. Leiner Bruno. Siegrist. Siener Peter and Stübinger Peter,
The location is loosened in its southern orientation by several smaller side valleys; in these, the vineyards are oriented to the east or west. The 10 to 45% steep vineyards cover 47 hectares of vineyards. The soils consist of a skeletally rich conglomerate of greywacke and shale, which is mixed with Gehängelehm, loess clay and loess. Some terraces are listed. More than 90% of the red varieties Pinot Noir, Portuguese, Dornfelder, Frühburgunder, Domina and Regent, and on the rest of the white varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Kerner and Müller-Thurgau are grown. Shares in the situation have for example the wineries Adeneuer. Bertram Julia. Castle garden. Jean Stodden. Kreuzberg. Crawl Peter. Lingen Peter. Meyer Näkel. Nelles Thomas. Riske Erwin. Riske Reinhold and Winery Sonnenberg,
The location comprises a total of 145 hectares of vineyards at 160 to 280 meters above sea level with 10 to 45% slope and consists of several parts. The core is located directly on the French border, some parts are in Alsace. It was formerly referred to as the "alternating location" due to the "frequently changing nationality" between France and Germany. The south-facing vineyard consists of profound limestone weathering soils with good Water storage capacity, Here mainly Riesling is grown.
The area "chamber mountain" was an independent individual situation and was not integrated until 1971. He is already on French soil. In the Middle Ages he was in possession of the monastery in Wissembourg. The wine was called "Kammerwein". The south-facing vineyard at 250 to 260 meters above sea level covers 2.5 hectares of vineyards and consists of limestone and clay with underground limestone. He is particularly suitable for Pinot Noir. The area "Saint Paul" is also fully located on French soil in Alsace. The name derives from a designated as "St. Paulin" outpost of the near Cistercian monastery Weissenburg. The south-facing vineyard with rocky limestone soil with low Erdauflage is very well suited for Pinot Noir (Pinot Noir).
The name of another area "Raedling" derives from "clearing". This oriented to the southeast vineyard in 180 to 220 meters above sea level with up to 33% slope covers eight hectares of vineyards. On the skeletal-rich Kalkmergelboden with limestone rocks in the underground are mainly cultivated Pinot Blanc and Spätburgunder. And a fourth area in Alsace is called "Strohlenberg". Shares in different areas of the situation have for example the wineries Becker Friedrich. Bernhart. Gnägy. Jiirg Werner and Shy Klaus,
As part of the Land consolidation 1971 became the Sulzfelder Sonnenberg the single location Cyriakusberg incorporated. In 2013 he was reactivated by initiative of a winery again as an independent single location. The south-facing vineyards cover 35 hectares of vineyards at 210 to 270 meters above sea level with 10 to 25% slope. The soil consists in the lower part of Muschelkalk and then goes over to Lettenkeuper (yellow lime). Here are the varieties Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc ( Pinot Blanc ) Chardonnay and Frühburgunder grown. Shares in the situation have for example the wineries Augustin, focal spot and Zehnthof family Luckert,
