Hallgartener Hendelberg

If you go to the Hallgartener Hendelberg, which ist locatated two kilometers north of the Rhine at 280 meters above sea level, a true Rhine panorama opens up to you. Effortlessly, you can let your gaze wander over the Rheinhessen tableland and hills to the mountain "Donnersberg", which is almost 50 km away, as well as to the Odenwald mountain road.

The proximity to the edge of the forest northeast of the municipality of Hallgarten also results in the name Hendelberg, which can be derived from the Old High German word "Hinta" for "hind". For many centuries, deer and their fawns have felt at home in this vineyard, which is probably due in no small part to the food provided. The Hendelberg is considered one of the highest vineyards in the Rheingau. The rock-rich soils of Devonian and oil shale give Rheingau Riesling its typical minerality. The wine gets its acidity and the associated storage potential from the "cool climate", i.e. the cool microclimate of the Hendelberg. Refreshing winds cool the grapes down enormously, even in midsummer, which means that the Hendelberg wines are bursting with freshness.
