Darmstädter Weinfest

Wine festival with tradition

What few people know: Where the Art Nouveau buildings of the Artists' Colony Mathildenhöhe stand today, wine was grown for centuries. Darmstadt in southern Hesse, now an internationally renowned centre for science and art, has been surrounded by vineyards since the Middle Ages at the latest. A very special tribute to the wine-growing tradition, which is now being revived in the city, is the Darmstadt Wine Festival, which has been taking place for almost 40 years.

 

Also special: vintners from six different wine regions, from the Hessian Bergstrasse, Rheinhessen, the Rheingau and the Palatinate as well as from the Nahe and the Moselle will be taking part.

 

Save the date for 2023:

30. August to 3. September 2023

Red Riesling

Did you know that there is "Red Riesling" at the Bergstraße? The Riesling-grape in its original version had a reddish skin. Only in the course of time did it become brighter.But there is a winegrowing area in Germany where the tradition is kept alive: this is the Hessische Bergstraße. Almost ten wineries are there, which still today - and even strengthened again! - cultivate and offer Red Riesling. For more information, please visit the website "Home of Red Riesling".

Weingut Dorst

Weingut Dorst

Some vineyards have been in the Dorst family for over 100 years. Therefore, we know the climatic conditions of our vineyards from the FF. We value our nature more than ever and treat it with care for the sake of our children.

On lime marl, loess, clay marl and terra fusca soils, our grape varieties, 63% white and 37% red, grow excellently.

 

Situated at 220 metres above sea level, morning mist regularly hangs below our favoured vineyard sites. A resulting, slightly cooler climate makes us winners in times of climate change. Then the so-called cool climate is a blessing for our vineyards in and around Wörrstadt.

Our region is one of the driest and warmest in Germany, which is why grapes like Sangiovese and Cabernet Franc ripen here.

The particularly good climatic conditions on the Moselle and the slate soil help us to produce very special wines.

 

Our vineyard sites Ürziger Würzgarten and Erdener Treppchen, as well as the Zeltingen-Rachtiger Deutschherrenberg are predominantly steep and steep slopes that require special labour and make the use of machinery largely impossible. The result is wines of high quality and special taste. Our grape varieties in cultivation are Riesling, Rivaner and Regent.

Weingut Wilhelmy

Weingut Wilhelmy

We are a young family winery that is now in its 3rd generation of very successful winegrowing. Our winery is located on the lower Nahe between Bingen am Rhein and Bad Kreuznach. There we cultivate around 7.5 ha of vineyards in the best locations of Langenlonsheim, Laubenheim and Guldental. Thanks to the great variety of soils, we are able to produce different and individual wines.

 

For us, the quality of the wine begins in the vineyard.

That is why we attach great importance to the care of our vineyards and to near-natural and ecologically friendly cultivation. The grape harvest is mostly done mechanically. This enables us to harvest the grapes at the ideal time when they are ripe and to maintain the quality that has grown in the vineyard. However, this requires a negative harvest by hand immediately before the actual harvest, during which all rotten and unripe grapes are removed.
