Winery Lisa Bunn

Lisa Bunn is a young winemaker and has been responsible for the wines since the 2011 vintage.
Father Georg Bunn handed over the business to her due to health issues. Georg, his wife Eva Bunn and daughter Lisa form the team "Weingut Lisa Bunn".

The flagships are the Rieslings from the famous "Großes Gewächs" vineyards of the Rote Hangs: Hipping, Oelberg and Orbel. The dry, well-liked, classic white and Pinot Gris come from the limestone and are harmonious and balanced; perfect companion to the meal.
As a typical Rheinhessen winery Scheurebe (Scheu) and Gewürztraminer (our spice grinder) should not be missing.

Hours: Tuesday to Friday 13 to 17 o'clock and Saturday 10 to 17 o'clock

English speaking visitors are welcome.

Niersteiner Orbel

Niersteiner Orbel

Not a swear word, but full-bodied praise

The single vineyard is located at the southern end of "Roter Hang" in a side valley towards Schwabsburg. The name Orbel was mentioned in the community chronicles as early as 1386. "Ölbel" is a dialect word borrowed from the dialect of the locals. An "Ölbel" is a broad, strong, four-bearded man who appears uncouth. A swear word! In relation to the wine, however, it is not a negative association: the wines here are full-bodied, juicy and rich. Riesling or Silvaner grow on loess and red-lying soil that is fissured like slate gravel. Not far from the site: the Schwabsburg castle tower.

Niersteiner Ölberg

Niersteiner Ölberg (Oil mountain of Nierstein)

Biblical reference, oil mill or oily Rieslings?

Is the single vineyard named “Ölberg” because an oil mill once stood here? Or did the Ölberg get its name because of the oily consistency of the wines produced here? Does the site maybe have biblical references, named after a monastery? Anything is possible. The single vineyard is part of the "Roter Hang" but turns away from the river Rhein and faces south-southeast, situated above Nierstein. Partly very steep with a gradient of up to 60 percent. Like it is tpical for Roter Hang, the soil here is Rotliegendes, the iron oxide-containing, and landscape-defining red shining clay slate. The dominant grape variety is Riesling. In the middle of the vineyard: the Wartturm, a Nierstein landmark. Once a medieval signal tower from the 12th century.

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.

Niersteiner Hipping

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.

Dienheimer Tafelstein

Dienheimer Tafelstein

Military horsemen, noble tables and fertile soils

In the Middle Ages, noble families received tributes from their people: pigs, cheese or wine. The so-called "Tafelgüter". It is assumed that the camp name "Tafelstein" refers to this. The vines between Dienheim and Ludwigshöhe grow on deep loess, loam and lime marl. Ideal for Riesling, Pinot Noir and other varieties. The soils are fertile with good water storage capacity. The "Siliusbrunnen" (Silius Well) located there refers to the horseman Silius, who served in a Roman cavalry regiment and was buried in the Rhine terraces.
