Winery Eppelmann

The winery of the 21st century! Tradition, award-winning quality, individuality and the passion for viticulture are one thing - a contemporary and innovative orientation of the range the other.
"Enjoying with all senses" is not an empty phrase here. The topic "wine" refers not only to the intense manual work on the approximately 20 hectares of vineyards or the gentle vinification in the cellar, but above all to the wine experience: numerous innovations of the winery complete the overall offer and allow a wine enjoyment at the highest level. It creates a symbiosis of quality, enjoyment, taste and experience. A confirmation of the concept resulted in the "Best of Wine Tourism Global Award 2014 "- with which the" Multimedia Wine Walk "was awarded - a unique concept worldwide It is an example of the fact that the wine enjoyment takes place especially outside the farm borders, that all factors contribute to a high quality of the wines and that ultimately the product and the oenology are equally at the center of all creativity.

On the estate only German is spoken.

Elsheimer Bockstein

Elsheimer Bockstein

Time out for sophisticated Rieslings and Pinot Noirs

Goat? Difficult soil? Jacked up? In German, all these words include the expression “Bock”. There are various interpretations on where the vineyard’s name is originated. Did the Romans once sacrifice goats here? Not very likely. The brown loam limestone soil can certainly be difficult sometimes. Or this is at least, what the winemakers say. Jacked up could be right, because in the area of the single vineyard there was once a resting place on the old army road. A rack for storing loads, the German word is “Bockstein”, sounds more likely. What we know, is that sophisticated Rieslings and Pinot Noirs ideally ripen here. With fine fruit notes and a refreshing mineral acidity. Also visible in the photos: a round-domed trullo.

> To the other sites of Elsheim: Tempelchen.
> The Selz River and the Selz Valley Cycle Path pass not far from the vineyard.

> Elsheim is part of Stadecken-Elsheim. The Hiwweltour Stadecker Warte starts here.

Elsheimer Blume

Elsheimer Blume (Flower of Elsheim)

Romantic or economic thinking? Successful either way.

Was it delightful field flowers, such as corn poppies or delphiniums, that led to the name? Or does it refer – not very romantically - to the Middle High German word "blum" for yield? Did a Mister Blume once live here? We do not know. The lime and sandy marl soil is rich in nutrients and well aerated. The wines from this top vineyard seem particularly aromatic and delicate. Riesling, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Scheurebe and Portugieser grow here.

Ingelheimer Horn

Ingelheimer Horn

Where mountains stand out and Pinots feel at home

The vineyard was first mentioned in a document in 1570 with the name "am Horn". The term "Horn" is a common designation for protruding mountains. Like the horns of a billy goat or roebuck. Following the tradition of the red wine town, the single vineyard Ingelheimer Horn is home to complex and elegant Pinot Noirs and other Pinot varieties. At the foot of the Mainzer Berg, above Ober-Ingelheim. Loess, stony and sandy loam soil as well as numerous limestones are characteristic for the vineyard, which extends up to 250 metres above sea level.

Stadecker Lenchen

Stadecker Lenchen

To lend, to lean on - best to drink up!

The vineyard name comes either from the word "Lehen" meaning "lent property" or from the word "Berglehne", an outdated word for mountain slope. The second would be correct, at least geographically, because the "Lenchen" nestles on the slope. Silvaner, Pinot Gris or Riesling grow here on loess, sand and clay marl. The almost ten-kilometre-long hike "Stadecker Warte" offers great panoramic views over the lower Selz valley, various resting places and shows soil profiles. At the top of the plateau, the "Stadecker Warte", which stands on the border of the "Spitzberg" single vineyard, welcomes you.
