Uffhofener La Roche

Uffhofener La Roche

The only vineyard with a French name

Hard to believe, but true: This single vineyard is the only one with a French name. It was owned by the Huguenot family La Roche from Erbes-Büdesheim. The dialect spoken in Rheinhessen actually used many French words. In the center of the single vineyard: one of the most famous landmarks of Rheinhessen, the trullo at the Geistermühle. A small, whitewashed round building. There are two of them in Flonheim alone. They are unique for the Rheinhessen region. Rieslings and Pinot Noirs of great renown grow here on red clay and sandstone.

> French words in Rheinhessen: for example Määr (French maire) for mayor or Schåndarm (French gendarme) for policeman. See: http://post.gabsm.de/mundarten_in_rheinhessen.pdf

Gau-Weinheimer Geyersberg

Gau-Weinheimer Geyersberg

Of birds of prey and leaning towers 

Vultures are very large, not too pretty looking scavengers. What does Gau-Weinheim have to do with you? Nothing at all. Because the word "Geyer" stood in the Middle Ages for birds of prey in general. That is, for the hawk or buzzard that lives here. The naming of the location is due to the appearance of these birds. They like to sit attentively on the vineyard stakes - called "stiggel" in Rheinhessen - and lie in wait for prey. Certainly, they also fly around the municipal tower, which is a protected monument. At 5.38 degrees, it is more crooked than the Tower of Pisa! Gau-Weinheim is located in the Rhine-Hessian hill country in a hollow, at the southeastern foothills of the 271m high Wißberg. The Geyersberg site runs east along the village and is protected from cold north winds. On dark loess and heavy clay soils grow the classic grape varieties Riesling, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau and fruity wines of the varieties Scheurebe and Bacchus as well as red wines.

Documented mentioned 720 with the name "Witzerberg", 1372 "to Wisseberg" and 1435 "uff the Wyseberge". The name is due to the mountain on Wiesebach. However, the creek is based on an old European water name and has nothing to do with meadow.
