single vineyard in the municipality of Erbach in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was mentioned in documents as early as 1519 as "Wingart des Reyngen" and in 1543 as "Hohenreine". The part of the name "Rain" refers to a slope at the edge of a field, which in this case means the direct neighbourhood to the Kiedrich vineyards. The vineyards, which are oriented from the southeast to the southwest at an altitude of 80 to 120 metres above sea level with a slope of 5 to 10%, cover 18 hectares of vineyards on deep loess, clay and marl soils. On the west side, the site is bordered by a three-metre-high stone wall that stores heat and protects against cool winds. The two varieties Riesling and Pinot Noir are cultivated here. The Baron Knyphausen, Jung Jakob, Oetinger and Schloss Reinhartshausen wineries, for example, have shares in the site. There is another single vineyard called Hohenrain in the Palatinate municipality of Knöringen.
