1868 map of the vinyards along the Mosel

The Prussian government commissioned the Steuerrath Clotten Mosel vineyard map in 1868. This was a revolutionary document for the time, clearly articulating the idea of terroir with an unprecedented level of specificity. Eight tax levels, in fact, were simplified and condensed into three "quality" rankings for the vineyards, indicated by the three-tone legend toward the bottom-left of the map. Meanwhile, the celebrated contemporary Bordeaux classification (1855) ranked quality based solely on the producer, with no mention of the vineyard at all.
