Winery Mertz

Achieving harmony between people.Work.Nature. This is the guiding principle of our family. Gunter and Carmen Mertz managed the winery after this idea already and since 2016, Sina Mertz has been responsable for making wine, after completing her education and studies in viticulture and oenology. Since then, a lot has changed and we are always increasing quality. Selective hand-picking and careful grape-processing are just two of countless parameters that we attach great importance to.

If you feel like visiting our winery, tasting our wines or taking a walk through the beautiful vineyards with us, then contact us. We gladly take time for you!

Opening hours: by appointment

Since 2018, the winery has been a member of Maxime Rheinhessen.

English and French speaking visitors are welcome.

Eckelsheimer Kirchberg

Eckelsheimer Kirchberg (Church Hill of Eckelsheim)

Church, cliff and wines from the volcano

On the southern border of the district lies the "Beller Kirche", a late Gothic ruin with a high choir, typical for Rheinhessen. The alter dedicated to St. Mary was completed in 1490, the nave in 1519. Today, the ruin is a venue for events, including wine tastings. The single vineyard "Eckelsheimer Kirchberg" refers to this church. The vines are rooted in gravel sand and exceptional volcanic stone. 30 million years ago, the whole region was flooded by a subtropical sea. The coastline of that time, the surf cliff, ran here. The “Strandpfad der Sinne” (Engl. "Beach Trail of the Senses") is a hiking trail referring to that time and making geology and viticulture come alive.
