Hungermüller winery

We are Heike + Ralf, 2 winemaker's children bringing their mutual love for wine making into the bottle. We love our work in nature and in the cellar. Holding a great bottle of wine in our hands that makes many people happy makes us proud. This way we can show how fantastic our homeland tastes. In addition to a lot of love, there is also a lot of patience in our wines. Because we give them a lot of time - during fermentation, clarification and maturation. The result are hand-made wines in small editions that reflect us - our homeland with its differentiat soils, our passion, our courage, our respect for nature and our whole heart and soul. Simply filled with love!

English speaking visitors are welcome.

Dittelsheimer Geiersberg

Dittelsheimer Geiersberg

Riesling - Powerful and precise like a bird of prey

Buzzard, hawk or sparrowhawk: birds of prey lie in wait for their prey and strike with lightning speed. In the Middle Ages, they were known as "vultures" (from the Middle High German gīr). Presumably, the location in Dittelheim is called so because of the large number of these birds. The "Geiersberg" is located at the foothills of the Kloppberg. The vines stand on deep, calcareous clay marl - rich in calcium, potassium and magnesium. In the glass, the wines reflect powerful minerality. Especially Rieslings, but also Pinot Noirs present themselves complex, precise, concentrated and cool.

Dittelsheimer Kloppberg

Rieslings at lofty heights and with chalky soil

With up to 280 metres above sea level, this site is one of the highest in Rheinhessen. It also faces east/northeast - a highly interesting site in the wake of climate change. On heavy clay marl "Pelosol" soils with fine limestone inlay, mainly Rieslings thrive here. Cool evening winds are ideal for the "grande dame" of grape varieties. Wines with a distinctive acidity and minerality, depth and elegance are produced. The name "Klopp" first appeared in documents in 1537. The name goes back to the Middle High German word "klupf", which means hilltop.

Oh, how delicious, this vineyard, these wines!

One of the most melodious vineyards in Rheinhessen - and no one really knows where the name comes from! The Middle High German word "lecken" is derived from the Old High German "lecchōn" and refers to something particularly tasty. Does it refer to the tasyts wines? The salt licks for game? Or something completely different? The vineyard was first documented in 1562 with the name "im Leckerberg". The vines grow on terraced slopes above the village on a wide variety of soils such as chalky loam, loess or marl; created by wind drifts and soil erosion from the Kloppberg. Therefore, the wines, Riesling, Pinots and more, show very different styles.

The location was mentioned in a document in 1297 with the name "munchouen". The basic word can go back to "Hufe" as well as "Hof". The name is based on the property of a monastery.
