Whether wild rose or rose garden - today vineyard.
Such a simple term, so many possible interpretations! It could refer to a natural growth. Wild roses often grow in Rheinhessen. In autumn their rose hips shine. Or there were early medieval burial grounds there, a very vague interpretation. In Bechtheim, there is also the story that the lord of the land and place at that time, the Count of Leiningen, maintained a "Roßgarten". Belonging to the farmstead in the village center. The site was first mentioned in documents around 1500 with the name "ym roß garten". The predominant soil types of this site are loess loam and limestone. The wines are rich in fruit aromas, concentrated and long-lasting on the palate.
