Where the sun shines twice
Only in a few places does the Rhine Valley ever open up as impressively as in the Rheingau – framed by the gently sloping heights of the Taunus, the light here seems charged. No wonder – the wide river acts as an additional reflector. Riesling loves this intensity and so the Rheingau has the highest proportion of Riesling in the world, almost 80 percent. But Spätburgunder also feels at home in the Rheingau – especially in the steep slate slopes of the lower Rheingau near Assmannshausen.
