The "Hessische Staatsweingüter GmbH Kloster Eberbach", headquartered in the former Cistercian abbey of Eberbach in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau, is the largest wine estate in Germany with around 220 hectares of vineyards. The majority of the vineyards date back to monastic ownership in the 12th century, when the Cistercians founded the famous Eberbach Abbey here. The monastery is one of the oldest wine-growing estates in Germany and indeed the world. In its heyday, the abbey owned almost 10,000 hectares of land stretching from Worms to Cologne. This also included land on the Bergstrasse, which was farmed via an estate directly under the control of Eberbach Abbey.
