Binger Scharlachberg

Bingen Scharlachberg (Scarlet fever hill of Bingen)

Red pigments in the soil for top Rieslings

The people who gave the name to this single vineyard site chose something that takes some getting used to: in the case of the childhood disease scarlet fever, the tongue turns red. The single vineyard Scharlachberg consists of "Quarzit Rigosol", a strongly consolidated sandstone with a high iron oxide content. The iron discolours the soil orange-red or scarlet. The vineyard was first mentioned in a document in 1248 with the name "vocatur scarlachen". It extends above the Bingen district of Büdesheim. Rieslings with great ripening potential come from here.

Binger Schloßberg-Schwätzerchen

The name of the location derives from the Klopp Castle, 1781 "im Schlossberg" to the other by a traditional figure of the Binger Winzerfest, the Princess Schwätzerchen. Her name may refer back to an old vineyard designation, 1471 "schwetzgin", behind which name probably hides that of the former owner (babbler).
