Niersteiner Brudersberg (Brother’s mountain of Nierstein)
Whether physical or spiritual brother - cheers to the Riesling!
Different interpretations are circulating here: Is the name of the vineyard based on the property of a monastery? Or does it go back to the four brothers of the Haxthäuser Hof, who shared the site from 1804 to 1835? Perhaps both are true? The Brudersberg is quite easy for everyone to locate: It bears the official inscription "Roter Hang" in white letters. Above the lettering, surrounded by a few trees: a lookout point with benches and a waving flag. In 2012, the view from Nierstein's Brudersberg was voted the "Most Beautiful Wine View" in Rheinhessen. A stele decorates the place. There is a fantastic panorama to the east - from Ried in Hessen all the way to Frankfurt and on to Taunus with Großer Feldberg. In the direction of the southeast from the bend in the river Rhein near Oppenheim to Odenwald with the Melibokus. The hiking trail Rheinterrassenweg leads directly past here. The only 1.3 hectare site planted with Riesling is cultivated by the St. Anthony winery.
