Bechtheimer Hasensprung

Bechtheimer Hasensprung (Hare jump of Bechtheim)

Long ear, deep well? Definitely a large diversity of varieties

Another very popular vineyard name in the German wine countries: “Hasensprung” (Engl: hare jump). There are various interpretations: Either the name comes from the Middle High German word "spring/sprung" and means spring or well. Or the location refers to the animal hare, which was or is abundant there and stands for fertility. Various grape varieties grow on the very fertile loess soil: great Riesling, fantastic Pinots, just as well as new grape varieties.

Dittelsheimer Leckerberg

Dittelsheimer Leckerberg

Oh, how delicious, this vineyard, these wines!

One of the most melodious vineyards in Rheinhessen - and no one really knows where the name comes from! The Middle High German word "lecken" is derived from the Old High German "lecchōn" and refers to something particularly tasty. Does it refer to the tasyts wines? The salt licks for game? Or something completely different? The vineyard was first documented in 1562 with the name "im Leckerberg". The vines grow on terraced slopes above the village on a wide variety of soils such as chalky loam, loess or marl; created by wind drifts and soil erosion from the Kloppberg. Therefore, the wines, Riesling, Pinots and more, show very different styles.
