Dessoy winery

Frederike Dessoy and Florian Schnell met during their studies in Geisenheim and took over the hobby business from father Andree Dessoy in 2014.

Their goal is creating sustainable and natural wines. They see their wines as "terroir ambassadors" making the profile of their homeland unmistakable! The alchemy of soil, microclimate, topography and the unique “Dessoy signature” make the wines appear dynamic and mineral at the same time without losing their lightness and freshness.

The young winery cultivates vineyards in the Binger Kirchberg and Binger Scharlachberg sites, which have been designated as large sites by the VDP.

In order to offer their wines perfect center stage, the two built "Dessoy's Weinbar" in 2020. A modern, innovative and sustainable vinotheque. The wine bar invites guests from the region and from all over Germany to taste their wines right in the Bingen vineyards.

Their opening times can be found on the website.

English speaking visitors are welcome.

Processed vineyards

Binger Scharlachberg

Bingen Scharlachberg (Scarlet fever hill of Bingen)

Red pigments in the soil for top Rieslings

The people who gave the name to this single vineyard site chose something that takes some getting used to: in the case of the childhood disease scarlet fever, the tongue turns red. The single vineyard Scharlachberg consists of "Quarzit Rigosol", a strongly consolidated sandstone with a high iron oxide content. The iron discolours the soil orange-red or scarlet. The vineyard was first mentioned in a document in 1248 with the name "vocatur scarlachen". It extends above the Bingen district of Büdesheim. Rieslings with great ripening potential come from here.

Binger Kirchberg with St. Rupert's monastery

Bingen Kirchberg (Church hill of Bingen)

Quartzite lies between chapel and church

The Rochuskapelle (Rochus Chapel) towers above, the Kempten district of Bingen on the banks of the Rhine below. In between the picturesque "Binger Kirchberg" vineyard, first mentioned in 1726. It probably got its name from the view of Kempten's Dreikönigskirche (holy trinity church). Mainly Riesling grows here, but there is also some Pinot Noir found. The loam-loess soil has a high stone content and is very rich in lime and quartzite. The quartzite contains iron oxide, colouring parts of the soil red. The wines show a distinctive flinty minerality.
