Böblinger Straße, Part Eight

Dieses Haus ist eines der letzten sogenannten Wengerterhäuser in Heslach. Heslach war noch bis zum Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts überwiegend Wein- und Obstanbaugebiet. Noch heute sind zahlreiche Weinberge vorhanden, viele Straßennamen weisen auf die Weinbautradition hin.
You see one of the last winegrower's house in Heslach. Heslach is the residential area where I live. It was predominantly a wine- and fruit-growing district until the beginning of the 19th century. Today there are some wineyards yet. Some street names also refer to its tradition.
Sinnigerweise befindet sich in diesem Haus dann auch die Weinstube "Zur Traube", dessen Besuch ich hier uneingeschränkt empfehlen kann.
There is, fittingly, a (wine-)tavern named "Zur Traube" in this winegrower's house. I can absolutely recommend a visit there.

Beer and now wine - what a area you live in, Steffen ;-)

Is this a white or red wine region, Steffen?

Thank you for your comments.
@anjoe: Nobody has to be thirsty in Stuttgart ;)
@Bill: Stuttgart is primarily a red wine region. Have you already heard from "Trollinger", "Dornfelder" or "Zuckerle"? But the white wine has gained ground in the last years.
