Rüdesheim Berg Rottland



Berg Rottland is a steep site with a slope of 33%. It is situated on the western edge of town, near the Rhine shoals known as the "Binger Loch". The name is related to the German verb "reuten/rotten/roden" meaning to clear land for cultivation. In this case, it probably refers to the fallow land (that needed to be cleared) that was given to wine-growers in Rüdesheim and neighboring Eibingen by the archbishop of Mainz between 1031 and 1051. The soils are quite stony, and vary within the site: slate, quartzite and gravel, partially covered with loess. Thanks to the optimal microclimate with its high degree of sunlight and solar radiation, grapes ripen very well in the Berg Rottland site.
