Biebelnheimer Pilgerstein (Pilgrim's Stone of Biebelnheim)
Biebelnheim, pilgrim’s stone, divinely good red wine
The single vineyard "Biebelnheimer Pilgerstein" embraces the village from three sides. The name sounds as Christian as it is meant to be: in the Middle Ages, Biebelnheim was home to a pilgrims' hospital, and the Way of St. James still winds its way through the vineyards and up to the neighbouring Petersberg, on top of which there was a medieval crypt. The site was first mentioned in a document in 1555 and the word "stone" indicates a resting place for pilgrims. Pinot vines in particular thrive in the limestone-rich soil, giving the wines their unique minerality. In addition, the local winegrowers devoted themselves to red wine - a rarity in Rheinhessen.
