Niersteiner Orbel

Not a swear word, but full-bodied praise

The single vineyard is located at the southern end of "Roter Hang" in a side valley towards Schwabsburg. The name Orbel was mentioned in the community chronicles as early as 1386. "Ölbel" is a dialect word borrowed from the dialect of the locals. An "Ölbel" is a broad, strong, four-bearded man who appears uncouth. A swear word! In relation to the wine, however, it is not a negative association: the wines here are full-bodied, juicy and rich. Riesling or Silvaner grow on loess and red-lying soil that is fissured like slate gravel. Not far from the site: the Schwabsburg castle tower.

Hiking on the "Red Hang" in Nierstein, © Michael Zellmer

RheinTerrassenWeg-stage Oppenheim - Nierstein - Nackenheim - Bodenheim

In Oppenheim, Katharinenkirche, Kellerlabyrinth and the ruin Landskrone provide a great start, before extended vineyards offer wonderful views. The Niersteiner marketplace is one of the most beautiful places in Rheinhessen with its ambience and is ideal for a break, before the climb to the Red Hang demands a bit of fitness. Rheinhessen's "most beautiful wine view on the Brudersberg" is worth the effort. Great views accompany the hiker to Nackenheim, with a beautiful view of the church of St. Gereon. The last part to Bodenheim is quickly mastered. The wine village is the Mecca for Strausswirtschaften and Gutsschänken in Rheinhessen.
