Ensheimer Kachelberg

Of ships, vineyard towers and vine diversity

Middle High German always has surprises in store: Kachel is derived from "kocke" and means a broad ship with a rounded front. The roundish shape of the hill evokes associations with this comparison. The location was first mentioned in a document in 1442 with the name "in kachelberge". In the middle of the hill: the newly built Ensheim vineyard tower - like a mast on a ship! From there you have a magnificent view of southern Rheinhessen, as far as Odenwald and Pfälzerwald. The winegrowers cultivate a variety of vines on limestone and marl.
