Höllberg

Single location in the municipality of Siefersheim (Bingen area) in the German Rheinhessen growing region. The name refers to the warm climatic conditions. The south- to south-east-facing vineyards at an altitude of 170 to 230 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 10 to 30% comprise 28 hectares of vineyards. They are partly crossed by old dry stone walls. The soils are composed of sandy to stony loam with clay in the lower areas and stony porphyry weathering with porphyry rock in the subsoil in the upper plots. The varieties cultivated here are mainly Riesling, Silvaner and Blauer Portugieser. The Wagner-Stempel vineyard in the core area, for example, has a share in the location.

There are other individual sites called Höllberg in the municipalities of Auerbach (Hessische Bergstrasse wine-growing area), as well as Buggingen and Hügelheim (Baden wine-growing area).
