The small but extremely fine wine growing region Rheingau is known beyond the borders of Germany. On the right-hand side of the great river Rhine, there are numerous vines which thrive to their full splendour on the steep hillsides. In the midst of green nature and on many sunny days the wine from the Rheingau can develop its unique flavour.
Beautiful little pearl: the Rheingau
The saying "small but powerful" could hardly be more true for the Rheingau wine region. In addition to numerous classic wineries, the region is also home to castles and palaces, monasteries and churches, which in turn are themselves wineries. The impressive hills give vines and deciduous trees, such as the Common Robinia (tree of the year 2020 in Germany), a firm foothold.
In summer, the entire wine-growing area is green, full of life, freshness and exuberant wine festivals. The Riesling from the Rheingau has an excellent reputation all over the world. Although the beautiful little pearl with its approx. 3000 hectares of vineyards is one of the smallest wine-growing areas in Germany, the jewel of the Rheingau is the largest winery in Germany. The Eberbach monastery and winery has been writing history since 1136 and sometimes serves as the setting for famous stories.
