Winery Frenz

The Frenz winery has been dealing with wine for generations and is a typical Rheinhessen mixed farm of wine and arable farming.
The tasks are clearly distributed in the company. With the entry of the son, Hubertus Frenz cares mainly about agriculture and
Patrick for viticulture. The acreage of the winery is 10 ha, of which 2/3 are white wine and 1/3 red wine.
In order to wake the customers' passion for our passion, we work diligently in the vineyard and in the cellar, combining tradition and modern technology.

On the estate English and German is spoken.

Saulheimer Hölle

Saulheimer Hölle

Limestone hell: Sun-kissed vines, cool limestone aromas  

Yes, the vineyard is south-facing and sun-drenched. However, the name does not mean that it is a  sinking hot hell. "Hell" rather refers to a gentle slope. The site was mentioned in documents in the mid-15th century with the name "uff helden" and at the end of the 17th century with the name "zu höllen". Clay marl and fertile loess are found here as a base. The subsoil is limestone, which is predestined for top Rieslings and Pinot Noirs. As early as 1963, the Saulheimer Ortschronik wrote: "The Nieder-Saulheimer wine is powerful, of exceptional quality and purity. The top wines from the Zu Höllen, Probstey, Hauben and Norenberg vineyards deserve special mention."

Saulheimer Schloßberg

Saulheimer Schloßberg

Castles, warm winds and no man's land

On 6 May 1588, "Seyfried von Dienheim" laid the foundation stone for the construction of the castle in Nieder-Saulheim. After the French Revolution, the estate passed into private hands - and it still is today. The vineyard, named after the castle, is characterised by deep clay and lime and clay marl. The microclimate is unique: the surrounding hills - like a cauldron - protect the vines from the wind. There is a connection to the river Rhein through the Selz valley. Even on cold autumn days, warm winds reach the Schloßberg. The Pertel tower, built by the Dechent family winery, offers a magnificent panorama. The stretch between Saulheim and Partenheim is so quiet and deserted that locals call it "no man's land".
