Hermannshöhle

Single location in the municipality Niederhausen in the German growing area Near, The origin of the name probably dates back to Roman times and refers to an ancient place of worship. Hermann is possibly a corruption of Hermes, the Roman patron god of messengers and travelers. The second part of the name is attributed to a small tunnel in the middle section, in which formerly the powder for copper mining in today's adjacent single layer copper mine had been stored. In 1902, the Prussian state government purchased a tract of rocky outcrops and low oak forest to expand its position, which has been known for centuries. For the clearing work mainly prisoners were used, for which one had even established its own branch prison. In the neighborhood is the single location Hermannsberg,

For more than a hundred years, the Hermannshöhle has been the best or highest taxed location on the Nahe and served as a benchmark for the classification of all other vineyards in the area. The oriented from south to southwest vineyards in 130 to 175 meters above sea level with 35 to 60% slope cover nearly nine hectares of vineyards. The predominant black-gray slate weathered soils are mixed with a koglomerate of volcanic igneous rock, sandstone, limestone, porphyry and stony-gritty clay with lots of fine soil. There is a risk of erosion in some areas. Here mainly Riesling is cultivated. Shares in the situation have for example the wineries Dönnhoff Hermann. Mathern. Racknitz and Tailor Jakob,
