Rappenhof

The history of the estate goes back to the year 1604. Klaus Muth runs the estate today. Its vineyard holdings are located in the wine villages of Alsheim, Guntersblum, Ludwigshöhe, Dienheim, Oppenheim, and Nierstein, each of which has different soil compositions, ranging from loess terraces in Alsheim and chalky marl in Oppenheim to Rotliegend(es) in Nierstein. Some 80% of the vineyard area is planted with white grape varieties; 20%, with red. The vineyards are cultivated gently and yields are deliberately kept low. The red wines are fermented on the skins, then vinified and aged in traditional oak casks and barriques. Rieslings are spontaneously fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks to bring out site-specific characteristics.
