Red crosses and magnificent Portugiesers
German Red Cross? No. The DRK does indeed maintain a local association in Ingelheim, but it has nothing to do with this single vineyard. The location was first mentioned in a document in 1383 with the name "an dem Crutze". A red field cross gave this vineyard its name. It was considered a resting place for the population at that time. The single vineyard between Ingelheim and Heidesheim presents itself idyllic and wild, with many hedges and fruit trees. Award-winning Portugiesers, among others, thrive on drift sand and limestone.

Sun, Selz and super wines
Not to be confused with the 1-hectare single vineyard "Ingelheimer Sonnenberg" in the middle of the city. The Sonnenhang is 88 hectares in size and is located in the extension of Ingelheim-Süd and on the Selz River. Sonnenhang and Sonnenberg are quasi-synonyms. This name comes from the generally favorable position towards the sun. Here, the Mainzer Berg slopes west-southwest toward the Selz Valley and allows optimal sun exposure. On limestone, loess and loam grow a variety of vines of rather strong style: Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. In the soil there are fossilized corals and snails.
