Mount Roseneck

Single location in the municipality Rüdesheim am Rüdesheim mountain in the German growing area Rheingau, It lies between the layers Mountain Schlossberg and dragon stone under the coppice. At the heart of the area are the granite cliffs covered with wild roses, rose hips and blackthorn hedges, giving the location the (former) name "rose hedge". The vineyards were created around the year 1200 and originally wound in hundreds of the smallest and narrowest terraces up the hill. It was not until around 1700 that the mule tracks were removed and paths with mountain-side walls were built. By the Land Consolidation From 1970 to 1985, the area was saved by the construction of paved driveways and spacious terraces. There are the bath (Subareas) Badger, Oak Tree, Hellpfad, Katerloch, Spess, Paares, Platz and Ramstein.
