A rocky search: Who knows why?
Steinberg is a popular German camp name. Stony, mountainous, the reason is obvious. Only: This does not fit at all to the Partenheimer Steinberg! Clayey loam and marl are present there - so rather a smeary soil that holds water well and gives the vines little drought stress. Also here and there limestone, but reason enough for the naming? Mountainous, on the other hand, can be let pass. Partenheim is located on a loop of the Rheinhessen Pilgrimage Trail. The community took advantage of this to create a biblical wine trail. The Himmelbergshäuschen rests idyllically on the vineyard slope, in the direction of Stadecker Warte.
