Berg Roseneck

single vineyard in the municipality of Rüdesheim on the Rüdesheimer Berg in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It lies between the Berg Schlossberg and Drachenstein sites under the Niederwald forest. In the core of the area, the granite rocks overgrown with wild roses, rose hips and sloe hedges stand out, giving the site its (former) name "Rosenhecke". The vineyards were already planted around the year 1200 and originally wound their way up the mountain in hundreds of tiny and narrow terraces. It was not until around 1700 that the mule tracks were eliminated and paths with uphill walls were built. The land consolidation of 1970 to 1985 saved the area by building paved roads and extensive terraces. There are the Gewanne (sub-areas) Dachsloch, Eichenbäumchen, Hellpfad, Katerloch, Spess, Paares, Platz and Ramstein.
