Editor note: Translate to English Ganz leicht bitterschokoladiger Duft nach mehr schwarzen als roten Beeren mit angetrocknet-pflanzlichen bis tabakigen Noten.

Along with Bingen and Nierstein, one of the three areas in the German Rheinhessen growing region; see there

The wine-growing region is located in Rhineland-Palatinate in Germany and is named after the region. The name is derived from the historical affiliation as the province of Rheinhessen of the Grand Duchy of Hesse from 1816 to 1919. The vineyards cover 26,758 hectares, making it the largest German wine-growing region in terms of area. The vineyards are located on the left bank of the Rhine knee between Bingen, Mainz and Worms in the form of a huge triangle. Many finds attest to ancient viticulture, such as a Roman water pipe in Ingelheim. Nierstein is home to Germany's oldest vineyard, the...

Germany, or rather the area that is now part of it, has a wine culture that is over two thousand years old. But even before that, imported wine was drunk, as evidenced by a Greek clay wine bottle from around 400 BC found in a Celtic grave. The oldest vineyards were on the banks of the Rhine, Neckar and Moselle. These rivers with their long valleys, as well as their tributaries, are still the classic wine-growing areas today. 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...

The red grape variety (also Weinsberg S 341) is a new cross between Helfensteiner x Heroldrebe (which was confirmed by DNA analyses published in 2012). The cross was made in 1955 by August Herold (1902-1973) at the Lehr- und Versuchsanstalt Weinsberg in Württemberg (Germany). Plant variety protection was granted in 1979. The name goes back to Immanuel A. L. Dornfeld (1796-1869), after whose initiative the viticultural school in Weinsberg was founded. The same parents also created the Hegel variety. Dornfelder was a crossing partner...
