Rheinhessen is one of the most traditional and largest wine growing regions in Germany where wine has been cultivated since 20 BC. Even the Romans had already grown wine on the left bank of the Rhine. And the oldest document on a German vineyard – the Niersteiner Glöck- concerns a vineyard in Rheinhessen.
A hilly landscape and vineyards as far as the eye can see – this is Rheinhessen, over 26.000 hectares comprise the vineyards between Wonnegau, Alzey, Worms, Mainz and Bingen, enclosed in the north and east by a wide curve of the river Rhine. The cultivation is favoured by mild temperatures, a lot of sun and low precipitation. A variety of climate and soil conditions ensures a rich spectrum of interesting wines.
