From Middle High German wīnberc. Analysable as Wein (wine) +‎ Berg (mountain, hill).

PronunciationEdit

Weinberg m (genitive Weinbergs or Weinberges, plural Weinberge)

Usage notesEdit

  • Weinberg originally refers to vineyards found on hillslopes. However, since this form of cultivation is the predominant rule in the German winelands, e.g. along Rhine and Moselle, Weinberg has become the commonest term for vineyards in general. The word Weingarten will be used chiefly for ones that are specifically known to be situated on flatland.
