Berg Roseneck

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