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.
