Famous, steeply sloping vineyard in a small side valley of the middle section of the Nahe River. The ancient name “Hollenpfad” (path to hell in english) describes a special vineyard with the word “hell” referring to the steep slope and most likely also to the color of the red sand stone that shapes this hill in such an extraordinary way. Due to the red color of the soil, the landscape is frequently bathed in the warm light of the evening sun. However, the name “hell” may also originate from an expression used by the vintners when talking about their hard work on the steep slopes.
The weathered warm sand stone of the Rotliegend rock strata lends the wines their inimitable character. The grapes that grow here are always very small and have a particularly intense, delicate aroma; the wines appear elegant with a very piquant mineral fruitiness and an excellent aging potential.
