Winery Kapellenhof

The Schätzel family lives and works on Selzen Kapellenhof in the 4th and 5th generation. The vineyards are located on the sunny south and west slopes of Selztal. The white wines are mainly Riesling, Silvaner and Pinot. The Riesling is the most grown grape variety with 35% of the vineyard. The best Riesling is called Ökonomierat "E" after the ancestor and winery founder in the 19th century. Meticulous work in the vineyard from a limited start, removing double shoots, defoliation, yield reduction with the green harvest are prerequisites for a natural, quality-oriented viticulture for the winery. During a gentle vinification in the cellar, the peculiarities of soil and grape varieties are worked out, both with the traditional spontaneous fermentation and with the clear, fruity pure-yeast. The manor dates back to the 14th century and is still a listed building together with the large landscaped park in the English landscape garden style.

English speaking visitors are welcome.

Hahnheimer Knopf

Hahnheimer Knopf (Button of Hahnheim)

Round hill, top Rieslings

"What a cute button you are!" The cute name of the site is based on the round shape of the hill, like a button on a piece of clothing. Tower snails feel at home in this region. This hill lies in the direction of Wahlheimer Hof, northwest of the village. Top Rieslings with storage potential thrive on lime and clay marl. The "Amiche" cycle tour passes Hahnheim, a former small railway line. Also ideal for families who want to simply glide along by bike.

Sörgenlocher Moosberg

Sörgenlocher Moosberg

Neighbourhood of vines and moss

Vines can also grow on dry soil. But here they do not have to. The site was first mentioned in a document in 1559 with the name "an dem moissen Wege". The derivation of the name comes from the Middle High German word "mos" and means "wet terrain". No wonder, since the small river Selz borders the vineyard directly. Beautiful moss cushions and lush ferns can certainly be found there. A variety of grape varieties grows on clay marl. A bench by an idyllic wooden hut invites you to take a break.
