Popular name (also Rheinterrasse) for a part of the German growing area Rheinhessen, which, however, has no legal significance or authorization. It is thus the over two areas extending slopes on the left bank of the Rhine between the communities Nackenheim in the north (area Nierstein) and Worms in the south (area Wonnegau) named. The commonality lies in the sometimes extremely steep, south to southeast-facing slopes, as well as the proximity to Rhine, An essential part of the Rhine front is the "Red Hang" between Nackenheim and Nierstein. It is a five-kilometer long, barely 200-meter-wide area, which was created at the collapse of the Rhine ditch. The wind-protected, sunny hillside location brings particularly favorable conditions for early flowering and thus long growth cycle and maturity.
