Single location in the town of Erbach in the German wine-growing region Rheingau . The name dates to the 13th Century back and recalls the well "Burne mark" on the boundary line between Lauterbach and Hattenheim. It was created in 1810 a curious border dispute between the two communities, which is also still visible. The community of Lauterbach was on their side, namely the well following inscription chiselled in stone: Marcobrunn Erbach. The Hattenheimer write in response to their side of the fountain: That's correct, it should be. Lauterbach for the water, for Hattenheim the wine. The name was already in the 18th Marcobrunn Century, a quality mark and has been referred to in 1726 on bottle labels.
