Single location in the community of Rüdesheim am Rudesheimer Berg in the German growing region Rheingau, The name goes back directly to a gift made by Archbishop Bardo of Mainz between 1031 and 1051, with which he donated to the winemakers of Rüdesheim and Eibing wasteland clearing (reuten, rotten, roden = roden) with which the viticultural use by planting vines became possible. It is located on the western outskirts of Rüdesheim, very close to the legendary Rhine depth "Binger Loch". The vineyards stretch west of the well-known brandy company Asbach below the Ramstein rock head. Through an extensive Land Consolidation in the 1950s, in the western area terraces removed and new paved roads built. However, the centerpiece and the eastern area remained essentially untouched.
The south-facing vineyards at 90 to 140 meters above sea level with 5 to 35% (20 °) Tilt comprise 31 hectares of vineyards, some of which extend down to the banks of the Rhine. In some areas, the situation is one of the steepest vineyards Germany. The soils, which tend to dry out, are a rocky mixture of weathered slate, quartzite and gravel, some with a light loess layer. Here are mainly the varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir ( Pinot Noir ) cultivated. The grapes are read very late and even in normal years select. Beerenauslesen or Trockenbeerenauslese vinified. Due to the special small climate with high radiation levels, the noble rot ( Botrytis ) particularly favored. The vineyards, for example, have a share in the situation Allendorf.
