Rhinehessen - Where wines are at home

Rheinhessen. With its 27,500 hectares of vineyards, our region is the largest wine-growing area in Germany. Vines as far as the eye can see, sunshine galore and winegrowers who, with their cordiality, invite all wine connoisseurs to discover the region.
Our most important grape varieties such as Riesling, Silvaner and Scheurebe, but also the Burgundy family, reflect their origins in their diversity and show what the wine region of Rheinhessen has to offer.

We are Rheinhessen

Our wines inspire many. So does our campaign. They are the heroes of our advertising and convey the authentic Rheinhessen feeling: our winemakers.
