Winery Alexander Flick

Viticulture since 1600 - the Petersberg family, which is visible from afar, is the home of the Flick winegrower family in Bechtolsheim. Three generations are pulling together here. Birgit and Ulrich provide with vigor and drive for the vineyards, Marlies and Günter are with experience and energy to the side. The young generation, Katharina (viticulture technician) and Alexander (Dipl.-Ing. Weinbau), bring a breath of fresh air to the cellar and to sales. Many ideas and a great dose of experimentation of the young winemakers ensure first-class wines. Every grape variety has the right soil: True to this motto, the wines of the Flick family grow in four different locations. The red wines and Burgundy in the terroir of Selztal in Bechtolsheim, Riesling and Chardonnay in the top location Herrgottspfad in Gau-Odernheim. Special features are Silvaner on volcanic soils in the Rheinhessische Schweiz, as well as Pinot Blanc in Höllenbrand and Riesling in Morstein.

On the estate English and Germa is spoken.

Westhofener Morstein

Westhofener Morstein

World famous and rich in stone

A bog (German: Moor) in Rheinhessen? Certainly not. The site was first mentioned in a document in 1282 with the name "in loco marstein" in a deed of donation to the Cistercian monastery of Otterberg (Pfalz) and can be interpreted as a "marker stone". In other words, it is a boundary stone or a landmark. It is indeed stony here: one stone found during clearing weighed up to 3.2 tons. In the upper soil layer, there are clay marl soils with limestone inclusions, and massive limestone rock underneath. Mineral Rieslings and Pinot Noirs bring world fame to the Westhofen winemakers. There are also plenty of vineyard cottages here, like the “Wingertshäusje Kommandozentrale".

Siefersheimer Goldenes Horn

Siefersheimer Goldenes Horn

Blooming heath on the winemaker’s alp

Like a horn, a pointed mountain, this single vineyard stands out in the landscape, hence the name. The addition "Gold" stands - as always when it comes to vineyard names - for the high esteem in which it is held. Here you will find a varied terroir, sloping and flat sites, loess or volcanic rock (Rigosol) as well as different wind and sun orientations for the most diverse grape varieties. From Riesling and Silvaner to Pinot Noir or Portugieser. On the hilltop, the pink blooming heath beckons in late summer. The best way to get there is via the "Hiwweltour Heideblick". At the Winzer-Alm, wine is served when the flag is flying. The magnificent panoramic view was voted "Rheinhessen's most beautiful wine view" in 2016.

Gundersheimer Höllenbrand

Gundersheimer Höllenbrand (Hellfire of Gundersheim)

No devil to be seen! Red wines on the famous southern slope

A significant landmark of the area: The imposing "Höllenbrand" sign, visible from afar on the A61 from Worms towards Alzey. Since 2016, the Rheinhessen logo has also been displayed on the terraced slope, which is 100 percent south-facing. The site was first documented in 1437 with the name "in dem hilprant" and in 1710 with the name "im Höllenrand". Both, the personal name Hildebrand and the Middle High German word "halde, hel, hölle" (for slope) could be the origin of the name. And the word "Brand" could belong to the Middle High German word "rant" and mean "mountain edge". So the hell fire has nothing at all to do with the devil. But the southern slope is as hot as hell: that's why winegrowers plant vines here for full-bodied wines, often red wines. It's a good thing that the soil - loess loam and limestone - has natural springs.

Gau-Odernheimer Herrgottspfad

Gau-Odernheimer Herrgottspfad (Lord God's Path of Gau Odernheim)

Steep up to the crypt, steep site for Riesling vintners

A path to the Lord God? Yes! Or at least almost. A steep path winds its way from Gau-Odernheim up to the 246-metre-high Petersberg, on whose spire stood a three-nave basilica with crypt dating from the 10th century. The remains of the crypt, which were found from 1947 onwards, are impressive: this architecture is otherwise only found in central Italy, and for Rheinhessen it is unique. The single vineyard takes its name from the processions that have led to the top of the mountain on church feast days for centuries. Full-bodied Rieslings with a high aging potential thrive here on clay marl. The Petersberg cultural trail offers a variety of insights into history, geology, fauna and flora - and leads right through the middle of this single vineyard.
