Red Hang_1

German expression for "red slope". Steep slopes in Nierstein and Nackenheim, directly by the Rhine, named after the type of soil that already shimmers red from afar. The soil, which is called "Rotliegendes" in Rheihessen, is a red slate that was created 250 million years ago, and offers perfect conditions for wine growing. The wines from this type of soil have a strong mineral character. Every year the winemakers organize a wine tasting on Roter hang, where all the wines grown in that vineyard can be tasted right where they are from.
