Mountain Rottland

Single location in the municipality Rüdesheim am Rüdesheim mountain in the German growing area Rheingau, The name goes back directly to a donation made in the years 1031 to 1051 by the Archbishop of Mainz Bardo, with which he returned to the winegrowers of Rüdesheim and Eibing Brachland clearing (Reute, Rotten, Roden = Roden) with which the viticultural use by planting of vines became possible. It is located on the western outskirts of Rüdesheim, very close to the legendary Rhine depth "Binger Loch". The vineyards extend west of the well-known brandy company Asbach below the rock head Ramstein. Through an extensive Land Consolidation in the 1950s, in the western area, the terraces eliminated and built new paved driveways. However, the core and eastern areas remained essentially untouched.

The south-facing vineyards at 90 to 140 meters above sea level with 5 to 35% (20 °) Tilt cover 31 hectares of vineyards, some extend all the way down to the Rhine. In some areas, the location is one of the steepest vineyards in Germany. The desiccated soils are a stony mixture of weathered slate, quartzite and gravel with some light loess. Here are mainly the varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir ( Pinot Noir ). The grapes are read very late and also in normal years predicate wines like select. Beerenauslesen or Trockenbeerenauslese vinified. Due to the special microclimate with high radiation levels here is the noble rot ( Botrytis ) particularly favored.
