Winery Heise am Kranzberg

We proudly lead our winery Heise am Kranzberg at the foot of the Red slope into a future, which should be characterized by a liaison of tradition and modernity. Openly and warmly we receive our guests, show them what our heart beats like and let them participate in our diverse everyday life.

Our selection of varieties and styles also offers the perfect wine for you. Choose from our Rieslings, Pinots or even more unusual varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Gelber Muskateller or Gewürztraminer. Our Roter Hang vineyard and our unique climate brings out the best!

You are welcome to taste these wines in our Gutsschänke directly in the vineyards. In addition, we are waiting with small Rheinhessen delicacies, which we prepare freshly and with love.

Of course, you can also take a look at the more than 100-year-old vaulted cellar, book a wine tasting or a typical Rheinhessen vineyard tour with a Weck, Worscht and Woi picnic.

On the estate English, French and German is spoken.

Niersteiner Hipping

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.

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.

Niersteiner Kranzberg

Niersteiner Kranzberg

Allow me to introduce myself: Mrs. and Mr. Craus or Kranz!

The site was first mentioned in 1418 with the name "off dem Crausberge". It is assumed that the name of the single vineyard refers to a personal name. The Kranzberg is the cone in front of the village to the north. St. Kilian's Church is enthroned in a prominent position. The site is mostly on the flatter slopes of the "Roter Hang"(red slope), i.e. it is not very steep. On loess loam, lime and sandy, clayey loam, mainly Rieslings grow – typical for "Roter Hang".
