Schützenhaus

Single location in the municipality of Hattenheim in the German Rheingau wine growing region. The name refers to a hut that was supposed to protect the "Traubeschütz"(vineyard guard) from bad weather in autumn. He drove away the grape-eating starlings and other birds with a buzz gun. It is located at the western entrance to Hattenheim, stretches up to the road to Hallgarten and Eberbach Monastery and climbs slightly uphill to the south-southwest. At the same time, the long drawn-out site runs a little to the west and is thus protected from cold east winds. The vineyards, which mainly face south to southwest, are situated at an altitude of 100 to 150 metres above sea level and have a slope of only 10%. They cover 52 hectares of vineyards. The deep coloured slate soils with loess and loess clay have a high water storage capacity. The main varieties cultivated here are Riesling andPinot Noir (Spätburgunder). The Barth Norbert, Bausch Hans, Georg Müller Stiftung and Ress Balthasar wineries, for example, have a share in the site.
