District of Hallgarten

The Hallgarten district is the highest wine-growing community in the Rheingau. The charming little village, integrated into the picturesque Rhine valley with its vines and crowned above the settlement by the dense high forest, is a special kind of excursion destination.

"Cool climate“

Hallgarten is located on the edge of the Taunus Mountains and in the immediate vicinity of the Hallgartener Zange, from which one can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Rhine Valley at an altitude of 600 meters. In times of climate change, high altitudes such as this are becoming increasingly important, as the ripening period of the berries is gently delayed. The high altitude gives Hallgarten wines a very special flavor, as the delayed ripening and longer sugar storage provide fresh, clearly recognizable fruity notes. These wines always present themselves elegantly. The characteristic acidity of Rheingau Riesling also benefits from this special climate - keeping it fresh and vibrant as temperatures cool throughout the year. The soils are also special. They combine a wide variety of components: On the one hand, consisting of pure sand, gravel and quartzite to weathered slate. Pure terroir!
