OUR WINERY IN THE RHEINGAU
We are a member of the Association of German
Predicate wine estates (VDP) and one of 35 VDP winegrowers in the Rheingau. Our origin lies in Assmannshausen in the lower Rheingau, where the Rhine valley becomes narrower and the vineyards steeper.
This is where the cultural landscape of the Upper Middle Rhine Valley begins, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002. The winery and most of our vineyards are situated in the middle of this dreamlike scenery with fascinating views of former customs castles and imposing steep slopes, such as the Assmannshäuser Höllenberg. During the summer season you can also reach us by chair lift - from the Niederwalddenkmal in Rüdesheim past the Höllenberg down to Assmannshausen.
On the steep soils, characterised by quartzite and clay slate, the predominant grape variety around Assmannshausen is mainly Pinot Noir. However, we have not only specialised in the production of high-quality red wines (Pinot Noir), but also have first-class Riesling sites in the lower and middle Rheingau.
All our vineyard sites are classified VDP.ERSTE LAGE® and VDP.GROSSE LAGE® (first and large vineyard sites). Here grow the grapes for our Grosse Gewächse (Great Growth's) and also for our "Daily's". Today, the winery with its 33 hectares of vineyards is managed by a team of passionate experts with high quality standards and a consistent philosophy.
Make an appointment for a wine tasting in our winery or book our moderated wine tasting tour on a boat - from Assmannshausen to the Loreley and back again, past countless castles and past our steepest vineyards in Assmannshausen and Lorch.
