Cheers, neighbours! With plenty of wines
Across the river Rhein from Gau-Algesheim lies the former Benedictine monastery of Johannisberg in Rheingau. The basilica is dedicated to "John the Baptist". The monks owned vineyards in what is now Gau-Algesheim and also named the single vineyard site after their patron saint. The soils of the single vineyard site are diverse: from very chalky marl soils to very fertile loess soils. Fine fruity white wines such as Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Kerner and fruity rosé wines grow here. Fruit trees enrich the single vineyard site.
