Holy grave

The estate is located in the municipality of Boppard in the German wine-growing region middle Rhine, It is run by Rudolf and Susanne Schoeneberger. Since 2004 they are actively supported by their son Jonas after his training as a viticulture technician. There are also guest rooms available. Attached is Boppard's oldest wine tavern with gardening called "Holy Grave", which has been family-owned for over 200 years. The original name derives from an event related to the custom of visiting and praying the "Holy Sepulcher" on Good Friday in the Boppard Carmelite Monastery Church. Once again on Good Friday, the traditional gang of men went to church after work. Strangely, the Bopparderinnen found that their husbands this time until very late supper set. When asked about their whereabouts, they answered in the following manner: "Oh, at the Holy Sepulcher! You can pray a bit longer " . It soon turned out, however, that the visit to the "Holy Sepulcher" was only short, but the longer the so-called "prayer" had been in a nearby wine tavern, which received this name from then on. The vineyards cover nearly four hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Fässerlay. Feuerlay. Mandelstein and Weingrube (Boppard Hamm). They are planted with Riesling (80%), Pinot Noir (16%) and Kerner (4%). Great care is taken in gentle grape processing. After a temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel, the ripening takes place traditionally in large oak barrels, depending on the wine. Every year, 30,000 bottles of wine are produced.
