Rüdesheim Berg Rottland

One of the most impressive steep slopes on the western outskirts of Rüdesheim near the Binger Loch is our Rüdesheim Berg Rottland VDP.GROSSE LAGE®. The name is derived from the words reuten, rotten or roden. At that time they described the conversion of natural areas into agricultural land, in this case the cultivation of vines.

The soil in the Rottland mountain, which is multilayered due to the upheaval, is composed of proportions of red slate, quartzite, gravel and a thin layer of loess. Stony, skeleton-rich soils like these warm up quickly and release that heat slowly back to the vines. At the same time, the drainage effect of the stony soil means that water is difficult to retain in this location and the soils tend to dry out.

With a slope of 33 percent, the Berg Rottland vines enjoy near-perfect sun exposure, which, in combination with its microclimate, helps the grapes to achieve great ripeness. Due to the fog banks that form in the Rhine Valley, this site is predestined for the production of noble wines. Thus, even in average years late harvests and selections of the best quality are harvested.
