Winery Heiligenblut

In addition to the classic grape varieties such as Riesling, Sylvaner or Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, we also cultivate newer varieties such as Kanzler and Scheurebe, which are complemented by the red varieties Pinot Noir, Schwarzriesling, Dornfelder and Regent. The balancing act between progress and tradition is achieved not only by a lot of manual work, but also by the use of the most modern technology, which not only facilitates the work, but also benefits the quality of the wine.
Our single vineyard "Heiliger Blutberg" is in every respect a special feature. Covering not even 3 hectares, it is traversed by many stone walls. Slightly warm clay soils let the vines come to life early in spring. Every ray of sunshine in spring promotes the growth of young shoots on the south to southwestern slopes of the Blutberg. The deep old vines are directly rooted in volcanic Mellaphyr from the Rotliegend era and produce mineral and unique wines. But best you make yourself a picture and visit us!

Weinheimer Kapellenberg (Chapel Hill of Weinheim)

Neo-Gothic chapels and a church roof made from vines

A chapel on a mountain. That's how easy it is to explain some of the vineyard names. Is it not? It can be read that a chapel once stood on the mountain. Today, the chapel "Zum Heiligen Blut" - part of the neo-Gothic Villa Heiligenblut complex - can indeed be found on the edge of the single vineyard. However, it was only built in 1890. Built or planted even later: the "Weinkirche", a church made of vines. The romantic crenellated round tower was built in 1887 as a lookout tower and belongs - like the chapel - to the Hannemann winery. Worth experiencing and visiting at any time: the Weinheimer Trift, an archaeologically significant site. A wide variety of grape varieties grow here on loess and Rotliegend.
