single vineyard in Wiesbaden in the German Rheingau wine-growing region. The vineyard was originally called "Ersberg", which then became "Mersberg" or "Neresberg" in the 17th century, meaning "rear mountain". The name "Neroberg", an allusion to the Roman past, was only created in the 19th century. The 245 metre high Neroberg is a popular excursion destination. It was created in 1525 and belonged to the Counts of Nassau before it passed into royal Prussian ownership. Because money was needed to purchase the Rauenthaler Lage Baiken, it was sold to the city of Wiesbaden in 1900.

Neroberg - Weinberg

The south-east to south-west facing vineyard at 190 to 220 metres above sea level with a slope of 50 to 60% covers 4.1 hectares of vines on stony gneiss soil with loamy loess. It has been under long-term lease to the Hessische Staatsweingüter since 2005. Riesling is cultivated here. Vines from here were donated to the Kreuzberg district of Berlin.
