Mount Roseneck

Single location in the community of Rüdesheim am Rudesheimer Berg in the German growing region Rheingau, It lies between the layers Schlossberg mountain and Drachenstein under the Niederwald. At the heart of the area are the granite cliffs covered with wild roses, rose hips and sloe hedges, which gave the location the (earlier) name "rose hedge". The vineyards were created around 1200 and were originally in hundreds of smallest and narrowest terraces up the hill. It was not until around 1700 that the mule tracks were removed and paths with walls on the mountain side were built. Through the Land Consolidation from 1970 to 1985 the area was saved by the construction of paved driveways and spacious terraces. There are the bath (Sub-areas) badger hole, oak tree, hell path, hangover hole, spess, couple, square and ramstein.

A distinction is made between an eastern and a western part. In the western area there is a ravine-like incision that leads to the steepest vineyards Germany counts. Here the soil is mostly medium-deep with extremely stony sections. The rather flat part in an easterly direction is limited in the east by a rocky outcrop and consists of deep loess clay soils. Here above all Riesling but also Pinot Noir ( Pinot Noir ) cultivated. The wineries, for example, have shares Allendorf. Episcopal winery Rüdesheim. Breuer Georg. Chat Sauvage. Dr. Corvers-cautery.
