Hattenheimer Engelmannsberg
The name Engelmannsberg derives from Engelmann of Hattenheim, a knight who deeded his wine estates to Kloster Eberbach in 1321. The soil consists primarily of loess, loess-loam and Tertiary marl. Because they are deep, they are able to store considerable water reserves - especially valuable in dry years to ensure the vines' water and nutrient supplies. For years we've harvested Eiswein in a parcel set in a hollow, where cold winter air collects.

Surface owned by Balthasar Ress:   1,8 ha (4.5 acres)
