Letting your eyes wander across the vast plains of arable land and the meadows of Rheinhessen, you can discover the village of Siefersheim, situated somewhat hidden at the utmost southern border of a tectonic upthrow extending from the middle reaches of the Nahe to this southern extremity. The elevations of Martinsberg, Heerkretz, Goldenes Horn and Höllberg, visible from afar, surround the village like the balconies of an antique amphitheater. Having originated in the Permian around 250 million years ago, the magmatic rock remained under the surface, weathering over millions of years up until today. It is mainly responsible for the unique flora and fauna of "Rheinhessische Schweiz", beginning in this area.
Vineyard Höllberg Siefersheim
Formed out of volcanic rocks the Höllberg is located north of Siefersheim. It occupies a favoured position, sheltered from the wind, featuring numerous dry-stone walls and parcels of shrubs. The south facing exposition and the stony soil provide year after year full-bodied, powerful, concentrated wines with prominent mineral notes as well as spicy, fruity aromas.
Vineyard Heerkretz Siefersheim
The name Heerkretz describes a steep volcanic cliff in the south of Siefersheim. The whole site is extremely fissured and gashed, with many deposits of boulders and coarse gravel, with many quarries, dips and exposed sloping sections exposed to cold breezes. These conditions provide the wine with its well-bred, racy character, with subtle, complex aromas, refreshing acidity, slightly salty mineral notes as well as concentration and a full body.
