Our Home

Gundersheim, a small wine village in southern
Rheinhessen

Our Home is right where oleanders, figs and almond trees thrive at their best in Germany. In the wine village of Gundersheim, right in the heart of Rhineland-Palatinate, about 40 km south of Mainz and 20 km west of Worms, we live surrounded by the best Rhine-Hessian vineyards.

Our vineyards are located at historical sites such as Höllenbrand, Morstein, Brunnenhäuschen, Aulerde and Königstuhl. Optimal sun exposure and deep soils allow even heavy red wines to mature to their full potential.

These ideal conditions along with Rheinhessen’s desire for individualism and innovation, appealed to us as well. Thus, an exciting range of different grape varieties is now populating our vineyards.

Come Along

Before the Rhine winds its way through the magical Middle Rhine Valley, it flows calmly side by side with the gentle hilly wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. Rheinhessen, Germany's largest wine region offers exciting, young and modern wines. On top of that, a variety of experiences awaits culture lovers, hikers & bikers, relaxers and gourmets. When swarms of tourists compete for the most beautiful spots in the neighbouring Palatinate, Rheinhessen still has spots in the vineyards where you can enjoy an exclusive sunset experience. There’s always something going on here... Along with the - as we think - most relaxed people of the southwest, life is quite enjoyable here. Thanks to a perfect transport connection in the centre of the Rhine-Main-Neckar region, you can quickly get out of the everyday life routine and into the Rhine-Hesse Be-yourself region.

A Good Climate

We have either a little more or a lot less of everything. As to more: Up to 1700 sunshine hours. Our average annual temperature is also above average and makes life in Rheinhessen pleasant. It rains less here than in other regions. With an average annual rainfall of only about 500 mm, this region is one of the driest in Germany. It’s therefore not surprising that the ancient Romans realized: A lot of sun + little rainfall = optimal wine climate!

Fertile Soil

Soil is the upper layer of the ground. It covers the rocks, in some places only a few centimetres thick, in others, several metres. The vine uses the soil as an anchor, a water reservoir, and uses it for nourishment.. It also has a great influence on the microclimate, which is important for vine growth and grape ripening. Rheinhessen has special soils. There isn't any petroleum slate unlike the soil at the Moselle or the Middle Rhine. There also isn’t any combination of volcanic rocks and loess in our soil as is found on the Kaiserstuhl. As a former inland sea, our soils are dominated by thick shell limestone beds with a nutrient-rich loess loam layer. Guarantees for fruity, fresh and lively wines.
