Mountain manager (viticulture)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The mountain manager was responsible for numerous vineyards of his sovereign , roughly comparable to today's wine area . He was subordinate to the country wine master .

The tasks of the mountain manager consisted of carrying out several inspections of all vineyards assigned to him in the course of the year, reporting on them and taking care of the accounting for the individual vineyards. The mountain bailiffs were subordinate to the mountain administrator .

In Electoral Saxony two mountain managers were used: one was responsible for the "Freyburg" area, the other area of the Meissen / Lößnitz. Because of the spatial affiliation, the official seat of the latter was the electoral Hoflößnitz winery .
