Assmannshäuser Höllenberg
Thanks to their microclimate and soil composition, the Assmannshausen sites are particularly well-suited for the cultivation of Spätburgunder in the Rheingau. The grape variety has continuously proved its value there for a millennium. Among the Assmannshausen sites, Höllenberg, with its steep exposure and high proportion of slate in the soils, is considered to be the finest red wine vineyard.

Message from Christian Ress October/November 2014
The grape harvest has begun. It has been a truly extraordinary growing season, but thanks to painstaking work and comprehensive planning, we’re well prepared for practically anything. Once again, we’re under tremendous pressure, but we’re used to that.
