Siefersheimer Goldenes Horn

Siefersheimer Goldenes Horn

Blooming heath on the winemaker’s alp

Like a horn, a pointed mountain, this single vineyard stands out in the landscape, hence the name. The addition "Gold" stands - as always when it comes to vineyard names - for the high esteem in which it is held. Here you will find a varied terroir, sloping and flat sites, loess or volcanic rock (Rigosol) as well as different wind and sun orientations for the most diverse grape varieties. From Riesling and Silvaner to Pinot Noir or Portugieser. On the hilltop, the pink blooming heath beckons in late summer. The best way to get there is via the "Hiwweltour Heideblick". At the Winzer-Alm, wine is served when the flag is flying. The magnificent panoramic view was voted "Rheinhessen's most beautiful wine view" in 2016.

Wöllsteiner Äffchen

Wöllsteiner Äffchen (Monkey of Wöllstein)

Cute monkey? Beautiful elms!

Little monkey? A funny name, which does not refer to an animal, but to a tree. The vineyard was first mentioned in a document in 1522 with the name "hinder dem affen Born". In Rheinhessen, elms have been called “Effen” for a long time. Hildegard von Bingen, who was born in Rheinhessen in 1098, also referred to the trees in this way. Riesling, Pinot Gris or Chardonnay grow on clay marl with a high gravel content.

Siefersheimer Heerkretz

Siefersheimer Heerkretz

Scratchy winegrowers, running armies, wonderful wines 

There are soils that are easy to work, for example loess. And then there are soils that challenge the winegrower. In this very high single vineyard, the soil has to be literally scratched, hence the name "Kretz". Responsible for this: the hard and rugged rhyolite rock or porphyry (a light-coloured, magmatic rock of the Rotliegende) with scree slopes and quarries. This particular soil is very rare in Rheinhessen (one percent). Very famous top Rieslings and Pinot Noirs thrive here. The "Alte Heerstraße" (Old Army Road) runs along the foot of the mountain, hence the double name "Heerkretz". Hikers travel along the "Küstenweg Rheinhessen" (Rheinhessen Coastal Trail) into the earth-historical past of Rheinhessen and pass numerous highlights, for example the Ajax Tower, and rest at the Lavendeleck.
