single vineyard in the municipality of Johannisberg in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. Located to the west of the famous Johannisberg Schlossberg, Hölle was already praised as "helda in monte sancti Johannis" in 1180. The name is derived from "Helda" for slag heap or steep slope. Until the 1930s, there were also sites here called Auf der Höll, Fischerhöll, Höllenkopf and Untere Höll, but only the Mittelhölle and the much larger Hölle adjoining it remain. The south-southwest facing vineyard with a slope of 10 to 30% covers 6.5 hectares of vineyards on stony-gravelly loess loam with quartzite in the subsoil. Only Riesling is cultivated here. The vineyard is solely owned by the G.H. von Mumm winery.
