HOHENRAIN, Erbach | VDP.GROSSE LAGE®

The VDP.GROSSE LAGE® HOHENRAIN is located above the heart of Erbach in the Rheingau. Its 15 % slope gradient faces southwest at around 110 metres a.s.l. Riesling grapes can bathe in the sunshine throughout the day. A three-metre high wall in the western part of the vineyard stores warmth and protects the site from wind. The word “Rain” means a slope on the edge of a corridor; “Hohen” translates to “high”. This refers to this site bordering vineyards that belong to the village of Kiedrich. History: This site was mentioned as a single vineyard under the name “Wingart de Reyngen” in a document dating 1519. Beginning in 1543, the vineyard was then referred to as “Hohenreine”.
