Town on the Rhine in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate with around 25,000 inhabitants at the mouth of the Nahe into the Rhine at the foot of the Rochusberg.

Viticulture was founded by the colonisation of Gaul by the Greeks and then brought to perfection by Roman culture. The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the Rhône valley to the...
