Gundersheimer Höllenbrand

Devil my ass! Red wines on the famous southern slope

Who does not know it? The imposing "Höllenbrand" lettering, visible from afar on the A61 from Worms in the direction of Alzey. Since 2016, the Rheinhessen lettering including logo has also been on the cross-grained slope, which is positioned 100 percent to the south. The location was mentioned in documents in 1437 with the name "in dem hilprant" and in 1710 with the name "im Höllenrand". Both the personal name Hildebrand and the Middle High German word "halde, hel, hölle" (for slope) could be the origin of the name. And the word "Brand" could belong to the Middle High German word "rant" and mean "mountain edge". So the hell fire has nothing at all to do with the devil. But the southern slope is as hot as hell: that's why vintners plant vines here for full-bodied wines, often reds. It's a good thing that the soil - loess loam and limestone - has natural spring deposits.
