Hackenheimer Kirchberg

Hackenheimer Kirchberg

Up to the chapel A striking silhouette and a chapel on top: a Catholic church once stood on the Kirchberg. In memory of this, the people of Hackenheim have erected a chapel there, the Michaelskapelle. Saint Michael is the local church patron saint. Once a year, the local community celebrates its wine festival up there. Yes, people are allowed to dance! A wide variety of vines grow on clay marl. However, the name is apparently not based on the former Catholic church, but on the southern location to the Hackenheim church in the village. >…

Hahnheimer Knopf

Hahnheimer Knopf (Button of Hahnheim)

Round hill, top Rieslings "What a cute button you are!" The cute name of the site is based on the round shape of the hill, like a button on a piece of clothing. Tower snails feel at home in this region. This hill lies in the direction of Wahlheimer Hof, northwest of the village. Top Rieslings with storage potential thrive on lime and clay marl. The "Amiche" cycle tour passes Hahnheim, a former small railway line. Also ideal for families who want to simply glide along by bike. > Discover the single vineyard via bike tour Amiche:…

Hangen-Weisheimer Sommerwende

Hangen-Weisheimer Sommerwende (Summer Solstice of Hangen-Weisheim)

How dexterous, the plough A Scandinavian custom in Rheinhessen? No, quite wrong. At the summer solstice, the sun is highest above the horizon at noon. But this fact and the Scandinavian festival have nothing whatsoever to do with the name. The location was first mentioned in a document in 1769 with the name "in der Sommerwindt". The name is based on a contraction of "Sommer" and "Anwende". Anwende" refers to the narrow side of the field where the plough is turned. A wide variety of grape varieties thrive on loess. Hangen-Weisheim, by the…

Hechtsheimer Kirchenstück

Hechtsheimer Kirchenstück (Church Piece of Hechtsheim)

The only one - predestined for Silvaner and Riesling The only vineyard in Hechtsheim, "Kirchenstück", is a gem: surrounded by the houses of the Mainz district, with a wide view of the hills in Rheinhessen, the river Rhein, Mainz Cathedral and Taunus. Silvaner and Riesling vines grow here on loess soil. In recent years, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and some red wine varieties have been added. The name of the vineyard, which was first mentioned in a document over 800 years ago, goes back to an old church estate. The wine festival…

Herrnsheimer Schloß

Herrnsheimer Schloss (Herrnsheim Castle)

Castle, castle park and chapel: picturesque location One of the most beautiful castles in Rheinhessen: Herrnsheim Castle from the first half of the 19th century, today owned by the city of Worms. However, the foundations of the castle are much older: a moated castle already stood here around 1460. The eventful history of the castle is closely linked to the noble family of Dalberg. The single vineyard nestles against the castle park and runs parallel to the Rhine towards Osthofen, including the small St. Anna Chapel. Riesling, Pinot Blanc,…

Heßlocher Liebfrauenberg

Heßlocher Liebfrauenberg

The dear lady, pilgrims and west winds In the Middle Ages, on a high plateau about 215 metres above sea level, a Gothic Church of Our Lady actually stood here, together with a hospital courtyard for feeding pilgrims. It was built by the Lords of Dalberg. The location was given the name "in unser lieben frauen padt" in 1524 and "am Liebfrauenberg" in 1737. Today, the foundations still rest under the vines. The "Mariensäule", a monument in the middle of the vineyard, and the name of the single vineyard still remind us of the once highly…

Heßlocher Mondschein

The location was mentioned in 1494 with the name "in the moonlight". The name refers to the high-altitude fields that shine in the moonlight.

Hillesheimer Altenberg

Hillesheimer Altenberg

Wide range of grape varieties in the old part of the district Nestled between the villages of Hillesheim, Dolgesheim, Wintersheim and Dorn-Dürkheim lies the single vineyard "Altenberg". This has nothing to do with senior vintners or old vines. The site was first mentioned in a document in 1618 with the name "im alten Berg". The area lies in the oldest part of the district. Apparently there was also a new part. A variety of grape varieties grow on loess and marl in the "Altenberg". A visit to the Evolution Column, a three-metre high marble…
