District of Hattenheim

Hattenheim looks back on a past steeped in history. The small village, home of the Ress family and seat of the Balthasar Ress winery, is located in the middle of the Rheingau, where the Rhine becomes particularly wide. Anyone strolling through the small alleys of Hattenheim, where half-timbered houses are closely lined up, will immediately recognize that enjoyment and love of wine have a long tradition here.

The vineyards of the district extend over wind-protected southern slopes and feed on the deep loess and clay soils rich in minerals. Their high water-holding capacity provides the Hattenheim vines with nutrients even during dry periods.

With the highest percentage of best-classified sites, i.e. the vineyards from which only the Grosse Gewächse emerge, the Hattenheim sites belong to the crème de la crème. Many of these sites have achieved worldwide fame, such as the Hattenheimer Nussbrunnen, the Schützenhaus or the Wisselbrunnen. The wines present themselves full-bodied and fruity. The acidity typical of the Rheingau ensures a pleasant drinking flow and makes you want more.
