Winery Neef-Emmich

The credo of Dirk Emmich: "For me, there is nothing better than making wine" His passion are the traditional grape varieties such as Riesling, Pinot and Silvaner. "Only the careful work in harmony with nature makes it possible to work out the particularity of each layer and each wine."
The same amount of passion, Dirk Emmich and Antje Stamm put in the careful restoration of the sales and tasting room and the wine cellar. In 2013, the two also received the architecture prize of the Chamber of Architects Rhineland-Palatinate.

"The restrained overall concept for the Neef-Emmich winery in Bermersheim stands for an exemplary handling of the found building substance in a clear, calm form language. The room for wine tasting with the refurbishment of the wine cellar and the wine storeroom, as well as with a comparatively small measure an interesting result can be achieved. "

From the jury evaluation

To the couple, the success in the competition came as a complete surprise: "We did not expect to win with our relatively small winery and even overtake big projects," Antje Stamm admitted modestly. She is all the more pleased that the refurbishment, which was largely based on her own ideas, not only got approval from the jury, but was also received positively by the customers. In 2011 and 2012, the wine cellar and the former cow chapel, including the grounds, were restored in two phases. The architect Winfried Klein from Budenheim and his team are responsible for the implementation. During the renovation both, the winegrower couple and the architect attached importance to the preservation of the existing building structures.

"So immaculate, simple and beautiful, you can experience newly designed" cow chapels "- as the traditional cross-vaulted balls are also called, which have now become the popular features for the Rheinhessen construction and wine culture - only rarely.
"The former stable in Bermersheim, Rhineland-Palatinate, was used as part of a refurbishment over two construction stages to create a 45 m2 tasting room, in which the purist décor makes an effective reference to the historic fabric of the building. In addition to colors, materials that are closely related to viticulture, such as oak, mineral earth and lime were used. In the delightful contrast between the bright, material-emphasized ambience and the dark furnishing in the clear design, the room as well as the presentation of the products of the winery impress with a clear unaffected style.

Gundersheimer Höllenbrand

Gundersheimer Höllenbrand (Hellfire of Gundersheim)

No devil to be seen! Red wines on the famous southern slope

A significant landmark of the area: The imposing "Höllenbrand" sign, visible from afar on the A61 from Worms towards Alzey. Since 2016, the Rheinhessen logo has also been displayed on the terraced slope, which is 100 percent south-facing. The site was first documented in 1437 with the name "in dem hilprant" and in 1710 with the name "im Höllenrand". Both, the personal name Hildebrand and the Middle High German word "halde, hel, hölle" (for slope) could be the origin of the name. And the word "Brand" could belong to the Middle High German word "rant" and mean "mountain edge". So the hell fire has nothing at all to do with the devil. But the southern slope is as hot as hell: that's why winegrowers plant vines here for full-bodied wines, often red wines. It's a good thing that the soil - loess loam and limestone - has natural springs.

Albiger Hundskopf

Albiger Hundskopf (dog’s head of Albig)

Woof! Woof! A dog's head for vine diversity

Rumour has it that the vineyard looks like a lying dog from the west. Indeed, the hill has a peculiar shape, but not everyone recognises it as a dog shape. Whether this is the case or not, field name researchers consider this charming story to be the most plausible explanation. On the south-western slope, the vines grow on limestone and marl with a rich clay content. All grape varieties are represented, and the winegrowers even produce noble sweet wines with great storage potential here. At the highest point of the vineyard, the tower "Auf dem Fels" (engl. on the hill), a vineyard and observation tower inaugurated in 2001 can be found.
