Monk's Trail

Single location in the municipality of Geisenheim in the German Rheingau wine growing region. The name is derived from the fact that this path was used by the monks of the two monasteries Johannisberg and Eibingen. This path was already mentioned in 1356. The south-facing vineyards with a 10 to 30% slope gradient cover about 100 hectares of vineyard area, of which only 80 hectares are planted. The soils consist of Taunus quartzite in the subsoil, which is overlaid by tertiary loess and marl. The two main varieties cultivated here are Riesling andPinot Blanc. The Freimuth Alexander, George, Jung Jakob and Klosterweingut Abtei St. Hildegard wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
