Pares from Paradies? Origin of name unclear, wines paradisiacal.
Where does the name come from? One can only speculate! Three variants are conceivable. Number one: The name of the site is derived from the Middle High German word "Parich" for "horse". In former times, there was an old cattle drift on this site, an agricultural path for driving cattle. Number two: In Latin there are the words "pār" for equal, on a par with and "pārēre" for to show oneself, to direct oneself towards something. Number three: The medieval term "paradeis" was shortened to "pares". The winegrowers particularly like this variation. The paradisiacal location! But wherever the vineyard name actually comes from, its lime and loess are ideal conditions for red wines, such as Pinot Noir and Pinot Madeleine. The single vineyard belongs to the Mainzer Berg, above Ober-Ingelheim.
