Winery Georg Gustav Huff

The winery Georg Gustav Huff looks back on more than 350 years of winemaking tradition. Passing on experience and knowledge from generation to generation is an invaluable asset and one of the foundations of success. At the moment, Dieter Huff and the sons Daniel and Stefan Huff are responsible for the development of the wines. Helga and Stefanie Huff look after the customers in the tasting room and on the telephone. The best locations are in the Red Slope. This barren soil produces particularly fruity and mineral wines. The company focuses on innovation and tradition, with healthy and fully ripe grapes in the focus.

On the estate only German is spoken.

Tool, hill, goat? Nowadays a premium vineyard

The name of the vineyard is documented in a deed from 1753, as the vineyard property of various Nierstein vineyards. The origin of the name has not been definitively clarified. It could have come from Middle High German and once meant "hügell" (hill). Or it goes back to "Hippe", which means tool - or another version - goat. Did bleating goats once jump over the hill here? Who knows. Today, no goats bleat there any more - and the winegrowers have nothing to complain about either. This single vineyard site is of special value. World-class Rieslings thrive on the special red claystone called Rotliegenden. The "Alexander-von-Humboldt-Blick" is a viewing point located in the middle of the single vineyard site. In 1790, the naturalists Georg Forster and Alexander von Humboldt travelled by carriage from Mainz to Nierstein and reported on the red rock and the noble wine.

Niersteiner Schloß Schwabsburg

Niersteiner Schloss Schwabsburg (Schwabsburg Castle in Nierstein)

Old castle walls and Riesling

Where once was a castle, today only the castle tower is left. It is not known who built the castle. Historians estimate that it was built between 1125 and 1245 during the Staufer period. Hikers can picnic on the lawn in front of the ruins. The single vineyard is named after the former castle. A variety of grape varieties grow on loess and red sandstone, mainly Riesling. The wines are dense with intense aromas.

Boy's name? Toad migration? Rieslings of world fame!

A vineyard of world fame! As the name "Thal" (old German word for valley) suggests, this single vineyard site begins in the valley, directly by the river Rhein, and then climbs steeply up the "Roter Hang". This single vineyard site is the steepest section on "Roter Hang" - very valuable and extremely sought after by winegrowers. The cadastral name has existed since 1753. Where does the name come from? There are several interpretations. The most common variant would be the boy or family name Peter. It could also be derived from Pater, meaning monk. The vineyards were owned by the church for a long time. Or - as they say in Nierstein: "Petten" refers to toads that migrate to the springs and sump holes that emerge above. An indication of this is that an adjacent area is called "Stumpe Loch", which is probably derived from Sumpfloch. Whether ordinary boy's name or ordinary toad: the Rieslings, on the other hand, are not ordinary at all. They are mineral, expressive and capable of ageing. They grow on bare red clay sandstone and get plenty of sun all day long.

The location was mentioned in 1750 with the name "im Rosengarten". The rose gardens can point to a natural growth. Often, however, they point to early medieval burial places.
