Kleine Untergasse 1
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 column by the artist Achim Ribbeck, is worthwhile. A tribute to the important geological site above Dorn-Dürkheim: 80 vertebrate species have been found here, for example prehistoric horses.
