Mount Roseneck

Single location in the community of Rüdesheim am Rüdesheimer Berg in the German Rheingau wine growing region. It is situated between the locations Berg Schlossberg and Drachenstein under the Niederwald. In the core of the area the granite rocks overgrown with wild roses, rose hips and sloe hedges stand out, which gave the (former) name "rose hedge" to the location. The vineyards were already planted around 1200 and originally wound their way up the mountain in hundreds of tiny and narrow terraces. It was not until around 1700 that the mule tracks were removed and paths with uphill walls built. The land consolidation from 1970 to 1985 saved the area by building paved roads and extensive terraces. There are the Gewanne (parts) Dachsloch, Eichenbäumchen, Hellpfad, Katerloch, Spess, Paar, Platz and Ramstein.

Einzellage Bedrg Roseneck in Rüdsesheim im Rheingau

The south-facing vineyards at an altitude of 160 to 200 metres above sea level with a 30 to 50% (27°) gradient cover 24 hectares of vineyard. They are very well protected from winds by the Taunus ridge. A distinction is made between an eastern and a western part. In the western part there is a ravine-like incision, which is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany. Here the soil is mostly medium-deep with extremely stony sections. The rather flat part in the eastern direction is bordered by a rocky outcrop in the east and consists of deep loess loam soils. Here, mainly Riesling is cultivated, but alsoPinot Noir (Spätburgunder). Shares in the vineyard are held, for example, by the Allendorf Winery, Bischöfliches Weingut Rüdesheim, Breuer Georg, Chat Sauvage, Dr. Corvers-Kauter, Dr. Nägler, Privy Councillor J. Wegeler Erben, Hessian State Wineries, Johannishof Eser, Kesseler, König Klaus & Ursula, Künstler Gunter, Leitz Johannes and Ress Balthasar.
