Osthofener Goldberg

Osthofener Goldberg

Miniature castles, church on a hill and Riesling on limestone

Site names with "gold" are beautiful - and frequent. They refer to the esteem in which the site is held. The "Osthofener Goldberg" is a limestone site and brings a cool, salty minerality to the wines. Winegrowers cherish especially Rieslings from this vineyard like a treasure. But also Chardonnay and other varieties. A chapel was built on the mountain as early as the Middle Ages, in the 6th century. It was dedicated to Saint Remigius, Bishop of Reims. The parish basilica was built in the 11th century. Even today, the mountain church is enthroned up there. In the center of the site: the "White Cottage", built in the second half of the 19th century, just as well as a table of wine. 

> On the regional history of Osthofen:

Dittelsheimer Leckerberg

Dittelsheimer Leckerberg

Oh, how delicious, this vineyard, these wines!

One of the most melodious vineyards in Rheinhessen - and no one really knows where the name comes from! The Middle High German word "lecken" is derived from the Old High German "lecchōn" and refers to something particularly tasty. Does it refer to the tasyts wines? The salt licks for game? Or something completely different? The vineyard was first documented in 1562 with the name "im Leckerberg". The vines grow on terraced slopes above the village on a wide variety of soils such as chalky loam, loess or marl; created by wind drifts and soil erosion from the Kloppberg. Therefore, the wines, Riesling, Pinots and more, show very different styles.
