Flomborner Feuerberg

Flomborner Feuerberg (Fire mountain of Flomberg)

Fire and flame for great wines The single vineyard site "Flomborner Feuerberg" with its south-south-west orientation is indeed very sunny. The soil, consisting of sandy loam and above all limestone, stores heat very well. Therefore the name of the single vineyard does not come as a surprise. At night, however, everything cools down, as the vineyard has an altitude of 250 metres. Different varieties thrive here, such as Riesling, Pinot and Silvaner. Incidentally, the name of the village "Flomborn" does not come from the word "Flamme". It…

Flonheimer Binger Berg

Flonheimer Binger Berg

Of mountains, seas and grape varieties There are more than 30 kilometres between the village of Flonheim - in the middle of Rheinhessen - and the town of Bingen directly by the river Rhein. There are two possible interpretations of where the name comes from: The name could refer to the ownership of the Bingen Spital in the 14th century. Or a geological explanation: the Binger Berg - as we call it today - was formed over 30 million years ago. At that time, large parts of Rheinhessen were flooded by the primeval sea and one of the surf reefs…

Flonheimer Rotenpfad

Flonheimer Rotenpfad

Resting at the Trullo There are two possible names here, but they are not mutually exclusive: The name of the single vineyard could come from the old German word "Rode" and mean "deserted". Deserted sites are abandoned settlements or farmland. Flonheim is known - apart from viticulture - for its sandstones, and the vineyard is located in the immediate vicinity of these sandstone quarries. The vines grow here mainly on loess, but also on Rotliegendem/Rigosol. Could the red soil pigments maybe be responsible for the name? The Adelberg rises…

Framersheimer Hornberg

Framersheimer Hornberg

Standing out Framersheimer Hornberg, Ingelheimer Horn, Siefersheimer Goldenes Horn. The vineyard name with the suffix "Horn" is popular because it denotes protruding corners of a plateau. But there is ony thing that only Framersheim has: a 7-way labyrinth on the eastern tip of the Horn, built from 350 tonnes of limestone boulders. The curves there go back and forth, but never astray. At a height of about 280 metres, you can enjoy the view of the Odenwald (east), Kloppberg (south), Donnersberg (west) and Taunus with the Rhine plain (north).…

Frei-Laubersheimer Fels

Frei-Laubersheimer Fels (Rock of Frei-Laubersheim)

Roots deep in the rock There are only few cultivated plants that grow as well on rock as the vine. Its powerful roots can penetrate metres deep. The single vineyard "Frei-Laubersheimer Fels" takes its name - of course - from the geological conditions. Clay marl and loess meet rhyolite and quartz porphyry rock. The wines, whether white or red, are characterised by the minerality of the rock and have a very good ageing potential. Frei-Laubersheim is known for its half-timbered idyll. The Eichelberg Hiwweltour leads past the village. However,…

Friesenheimer Bergpfad

Friesenheimer Bergpfad

With momentum "nuff and runner" again Rheinhessen and its mountains: Granted, they are small mountains. But if you ride from Weinolsheim to Friesenheim and then back up to Köngernheim, your ears may well fall. Cyclists definitely feel the wind. The people of Rheinhessen would say: "You ride ruff (up) and runner (down) again". In this respect: Mountain accepted as a term in the lagenname. The camp name is based on a mountain path located in the immediate vicinity. Friesenheim lies in the valley, the small river Selz leads through the…
