Einzellage

Definition

Wine

  • the smallest officially recognised unit in the German wine classification system, a vineyard that covers more than five hectares. The definition resulted in thousands of tiny vineyards combining to form a single Einzellage when this system was introduced in the 1970s. The next largest area in this system is a Grosslage, containing many Einzellagen, then a Bereich (a wine-producing area), then an Anbaugebiet (general region).
