single vineyard in Wiesbaden in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The 245-metre-high Neroberg is the local mountain of Wiesbaden, the capital of Hesse, and a popular destination for excursions. On the south-facing slope, the 4.1-hectare vineyard is situated on stony gneiss soil with admixtures of loamy loess. It was planted in 1525 and belonged to the Counts of Nassau before it became the property of the Royal Prussians. Because money was needed to buy the Baiken site in Rauenthal, the Prussians sold the Neroberg to the city of Wiesbaden in 1900. Originally, the site was called "Ersberg", which then became "Mersberg" or "Neresberg" in the 17th century, meaning "back mountain". The name "Neroberg", alluding to the Roman past, was only coined in the 19th century. The site is owned by the city of Wiesbaden. Since October 2005, it has been leased on a long-term basis by the Hessische Staatsweingüter. Only Riesling is cultivated here. Vines from here were donated to the Kreuzberg district in Berlin.
