Winery Schott

In the center of the Rheinhessen hill country lies our winery with wine shop and estate bar in Stadecken-Elsheim, a fine address for good wine. Currently we are cultivating 25 hectares of vineyards, which are located in the vineyard sites Stadecker Lenchen, Stadecker Spitzberg, Essen Teufsspfad and Elsheimer Blume. Our vineyards are currently planted with 70 percent white and 30 percent red wines. Rheinhessen is known for its large portfolio of different grape varieties, as are we, with the traditional grape varieties still playing an important role. We have Riesling and Pinot varieties, but at the same time we grow specialties such as St. Laurent, Chardonnay, Perle, Gewürztraminer.

English speaking visitors are welcome.

Essenheimer Teufelspfad

Essenheimer Teufelspfad (Devil’s path in Essenheim)

Devilishly good Rieslings and Pinots

This single vineyard flanks the municipality of Essenheim in the direction of Ober-Olm and Stadecken-Elsheim - with a view into the Selz Valley. Was the devil at work here? Names with the compound "devil" often indicate disreputable localities. Sometimes, however, it is simply a personal name. In neighbouring Nieder-Olm there still is a street called Teufelspfad. Legend says: A thief planned to steal grapes in the vineyards. On his way, someone stopped him. When he turned around to see who was holding him back, he saw the devil. The thief escaped and became a "good man". The single vineyard is dominated by limestone. A heavenly place for devilishly good Rieslings, just as well as for white and red Pinot varieties.

Elsheimer Blume

Elsheimer Blume (Flower of Elsheim)

Romantic or economic thinking? Successful either way.

Was it delightful field flowers, such as corn poppies or delphiniums, that led to the name? Or does it refer – not very romantically - to the Middle High German word "blum" for yield? Did a Mister Blume once live here? We do not know. The lime and sandy marl soil is rich in nutrients and well aerated. The wines from this top vineyard seem particularly aromatic and delicate. Riesling, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Scheurebe and Portugieser grow here.

Stadecker Spitzberg

Stadecker Spitzberg

Top mountain!

Just like the vineyard name "Horn", "Spitzberg" is also based on the mountain shape. The roots of the vines work their way through fertile loess and heavy clay marl. Hikers can best explore the vineyard via the "Hiwweltour Stadecker Warte". After a short steep climb, the path leads to a pavilion with a magnificent view. The clay marl soil profile allows you to look deep into the earth. The "Stadecker Warte" was already built by the winegrowers in 1933 and extended with a tower in the 1980s.

Stadecker Lenchen

Stadecker Lenchen

To lend, to lean on - best to drink up!

The vineyard name comes either from the word "Lehen" meaning "lent property" or from the word "Berglehne", an outdated word for mountain slope. The second would be correct, at least geographically, because the "Lenchen" nestles on the slope. Silvaner, Pinot Gris or Riesling grow here on loess, sand and clay marl. The almost ten-kilometre-long hike "Stadecker Warte" offers great panoramic views over the lower Selz valley, various resting places and shows soil profiles. At the top of the plateau, the "Stadecker Warte", which stands on the border of the "Spitzberg" single vineyard, welcomes you.
