The municipality of Nierstein-Schwabsburg with around 8,400 inhabitants is located on the Rhine in the federal state of Rhineland-Palatinate. The Schwabsburg district was an independent municipality until 1970. One of the three wine-growing areas in the Rheinhessen wine-growing region was also named after Nierstein, the other two being Bingen and Wonnegau. The Nierstein area, which lies to the north-east, dates back to the Roman city of Mainz, founded in 38 BC. The centre is the Rhine front from Nackenheim to Schwabsburg. Here, on the famous Roter Hang (Red Slope ), the most impressive or best steep...

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 conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar (100-44 BC) brought Roman viticulture from the Rhône valley to the...

The white grape variety comes from Germany. Synonyms or colored varieties are among other things yellow Orleans, Gros Riesling, green Orleans, Hartheunisch, hard stallion, Orleaner, Orléans Jaune, Orléanstraube, Orleanzer, Orlänzsch, Weißer Wälscher and Weißer Orléans. The attribute "hard" refers to the thick-skinned berry skins of the productive vine. It yields alcohol-rich, full-bodied, acidic white wines with diverse aromas of dried apricot, herbs, hay and beeswax.
