Straußwirtschaft Weingut Martin
Of ships, vineyard towers and vine diversity
Middle High German always has surprises in store: Kachel is derived from "kocke" and means a broad ship with a rounded front. The roundish shape of the hill evokes associations with this comparison. The location was first mentioned in a document in 1442 with the name "in kachelberge". In the middle of the hill: the newly built Ensheim vineyard tower - like a mast on a ship! From there you have a magnificent view of southern Rheinhessen, as far as Odenwald and Pfälzerwald. The winegrowers cultivate a variety of vines on limestone and marl.
"You're a real piece of gold!" That's what, in Germany, we sometimes call our loved ones. An expression of appreciation. It is the same with this single vineyard site: the high esteem of the site is expressed in this vineyard name. It was first mentioned in 1462 with the name "im goltale". A wide variety of vines grow on sand and clay marl.
