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 June / July 2015
Our new price list is available. It’s not merely a list of products and prices printed on a piece of paper – it’s a little magazine. We went to great efforts in preparing the new list. It provides all kinds of information about our vineyard sites, our philosophy, and how we work.

We’ve put together a new “pRESSbook.” It’s available immediately as a pdf file or we’ll be happy to send you a hard copy. The pRESSbook is a compilation of the most important opinions, reviews, and critiques about us and our wines. Since the last one was issued, there have been quite a number of new “echoes” – we’re both proud and grateful for this and the fact that our wines have been held in such high esteem in recent years.
