The winery is located in the municipality of Nackenheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. It was founded in 1890 by the Mainz banker Carl Gunderloch (1846-1935) through the purchase of the legendary Nackenheimer Rothenberg site and the historic "Haus am Roten Berg" estate. He is considered a pioneer of quality winegrowing on the Rhine and was a co-founder of today's VDP. Since 2015, the company has been run in the sixth family generation by son Johannes Hasselbach, the great-great-great-grandson of the founder. He is supported in his work by cellar master and operations manager Heiner Maleton. A renovation and building-ecologically sound extension of the estate were completed in 2017.
The Wine lexicon helps me to stay up to date and refresh my knowledge. Thank you for this Lexicon that will never end in terms of topicality! That's what makes it so exciting to visit more often.Thorsten Rahn
