Stiftsberg

Single location in the municipality Heilbronn (area Württembergisch Unterland) in the German growing area Wuerttemberg, It was first mentioned in 1281 as "Stifteberch". The name goes back to the then owner Stift Comburg. The aligned from north to east vineyards with 10 to 40% slope cover about 325 hectares of vineyards. The size is a very inhomogeneous location. The soil was created by weathering of calcareous clay of the gypsum Keupers. The characteristic plaster deposits were so powerful in some places that they were even mined earlier. Shares in the situation have for example the wineries Drautz-Able. GA Heinrich. Kistenmacher-Hengerer. Short-Wagner and Schäfer-Heinrich,
