The Rappenhof winery is located in the centre of the municipality of Alsheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The name derives from the owner's ancestors' passion for horse-drawn carriages with fiery black horses. The farm's origins date back to 1604, when Hieronymus Hirsch, an ancestor of the current owner Klaus Muth, founded the winery. Klaus Muth took over the management of the winery in the 12th generation after studying law and gaining practical experience in viticulture in Australia and the USA. The cellar master is Christian Hahn (Geisenheim graduate), and master winemaker Hermann Muth is responsible for the external operations.
