Winery Thörle

Gault Millau 2014, 3 red grapes: "The innovative Silvaner Probstey is an upcoming classic, the dry Riesling from Hölle has enormous stature and depth. With the somewhat more playful Schlossberg and the Probstey, the Thörle brothers present a very strong trio of vineyared sites from the white king's variety. However, the Chardonnay "Muschelkalk" also astonishes. With his finely woven saltiness and the integrated roasting aromas, he impressively demonstrates the power of Christoph and Johannes Thörle in developing the wooden barrel. "Stuart Pigott in Fine Magazin:" We will hear a lot more from the Thörles! "

English sepaking visitors are welcome.

Saulheimer Hölle

Saulheimer Hölle

Limestone hell: Sun-kissed vines, cool limestone aromas  

Yes, the vineyard is south-facing and sun-drenched. However, the name does not mean that it is a  sinking hot hell. "Hell" rather refers to a gentle slope. The site was mentioned in documents in the mid-15th century with the name "uff helden" and at the end of the 17th century with the name "zu höllen". Clay marl and fertile loess are found here as a base. The subsoil is limestone, which is predestined for top Rieslings and Pinot Noirs. As early as 1963, the Saulheimer Ortschronik wrote: "The Nieder-Saulheimer wine is powerful, of exceptional quality and purity. The top wines from the Zu Höllen, Probstey, Hauben and Norenberg vineyards deserve special mention."

Saulheimer Schloßberg

Saulheimer Schloßberg

Castles, warm winds and no man's land

On 6 May 1588, "Seyfried von Dienheim" laid the foundation stone for the construction of the castle in Nieder-Saulheim. After the French Revolution, the estate passed into private hands - and it still is today. The vineyard, named after the castle, is characterised by deep clay and lime and clay marl. The microclimate is unique: the surrounding hills - like a cauldron - protect the vines from the wind. There is a connection to the river Rhein through the Selz valley. Even on cold autumn days, warm winds reach the Schloßberg. The Pertel tower, built by the Dechent family winery, offers a magnificent panorama. The stretch between Saulheim and Partenheim is so quiet and deserted that locals call it "no man's land".
