Winery Winter GbR

In the midst of the idyllic hilly landscape of Rheinhessen, just below the Kloppberg surrounded by vineyards, lies the impressive Winter winery. The vines of the family vineyard have been there since the 17th century, predominantly on calcareous soils around Dittelsheim, producing delicate, finesse wines with soul and personality. In 2013, the 20-hectare winery by Stefan Winter became a member of the internationally recognized association of German predicate wineries (VDP). Since 2004, he has been a member of the dynamic Rhineland-based winegrowing association Message in a Bottle and an active member of the German Weinelf. To emphasize each vineyard individually is the high demand that the winery Winter places itself and implements with the cultivation of classical grape varieties such as Riesling and Pinot. Precise and meticulous craftsmanship produces straight-lined wines with a traditionally moderate alcohol content and vintage-style expression.

Bechtheimer Geyersberg

Bechtheimer Geyersberg (Vulture hill of Bechtheim)

Rieslings under the wings of birds of prey

In Medieval times, birds of prey were called vultures (German: “Geier”). And these animals are indeed the eponym here. The mountain used to have wooded areas and vultures nested there. The location was already mentioned in documents around 1500 with the name "ym nesten geierßbuhl". On the carbonate-rich loess soils with a high lime content, mainly Rieslings grow, but also many other grape varieties. The wines from there are powerful and expressive – just like birds of prey.

Dittelsheimer Kloppberg

Dittelsheimer Kloppberg

Rieslings at lofty heights and with chalky soil

With up to 280 metres above sea level, this site is one of the highest in Rheinhessen. It also faces east/northeast - a highly interesting site in the wake of climate change. On heavy clay marl "Pelosol" soils with fine limestone inlay, mainly Rieslings thrive here. Cool evening winds are ideal for the "grande dame" of grape varieties. Wines with a distinctive acidity and minerality, depth and elegance are produced. The name "Klopp" first appeared in documents in 1537. The name goes back to the Middle High German word "klupf", which means hilltop.

Dittelsheimer Leckerberg

Dittelsheimer Leckerberg

Oh, how delicious, this vineyard, these wines!

One of the most melodious vineyards in Rheinhessen - and no one really knows where the name comes from! The Middle High German word "lecken" is derived from the Old High German "lecchōn" and refers to something particularly tasty. Does it refer to the tasyts wines? The salt licks for game? Or something completely different? The vineyard was first documented in 1562 with the name "im Leckerberg". The vines grow on terraced slopes above the village on a wide variety of soils such as chalky loam, loess or marl; created by wind drifts and soil erosion from the Kloppberg. Therefore, the wines, Riesling, Pinots and more, show very different styles.
