Limestone hell: Sun-kissed vines, cool limestone aromas
Yes, the vineyard is south-facing and sun-drenched. However, the name does not mean that it is a sinking hot hell. "Hell" rather refers to a gentle slope. The site was mentioned in documents in the mid-15th century with the name "uff helden" and at the end of the 17th century with the name "zu höllen". Clay marl and fertile loess are found here as a base. The subsoil is limestone, which is predestined for top Rieslings and Pinot Noirs. As early as 1963, the Saulheimer Ortschronik wrote: "The Nieder-Saulheimer wine is powerful, of exceptional quality and purity. The top wines from the Zu Höllen, Probstey, Hauben and Norenberg vineyards deserve special mention."
