Neus Winery

The winery including the appropriate building and park ensemble was newly enlivened since it has become property of the Mainz business family Schmitz in March 2013. The villa from the Gründerzeit was built in the years from 1881 to 1883 according to the neoclassical style and was classified as a highly modern farm building in those days.

Along the protected farm villa and the winery a generous and also protected park with an old tree population stretches which invites you to stroll along. The cautiously renovated rooms radiate a special valency. With intentionally used style elements it was possible to modernise the grand winery building appropriately and to create a tasteful ambience for wine presentations.

The newly designed wine house in which you can taste their own Burgundy wines also radiates timeless elegance. In 2016 it was awarded the architecture price wine by the Chamber of Architects Rhineland-Palatinate.

Wagner Winery

Together with their parents the „three Wagner brothers“ and their wives run the 300-year-old family business within the historical centre of Essenheim. Each family brings in their skills in the maximum way which creates a winetouristic world to experience.

Originally the six Wagners are an oenologist, historian, mineralogist, journalist, biologist and hotel manageress. They create the frame for their especially culturally coined winetouristic experience.

Whether with a cabaret stage or farm festivals, wine and crime readings or children’s events in the vineyard where the young generation takes care of its patrons vines – the Wagner winery lives wine culture.

Domhof Winery

Already honoured with the award in the category Architecture and landscapes in 2010 the winery again convinced with its application. The Baumann family has built sleeping facilities in the former bottle storage. 12 individually designed double rooms classified with 3 stars superior by the DeHoGa as well as endowed with  the seal of approval „tested accessibility“.

This last innovation makes it an oenotouristic all-round experience: celebration, meetings, wine enjoyment and overnighting – including an own geo-cache park with eight stations.

mundart Restaurant

In the old part of Nieder-Saulheim the restaurant is located in a protected homestead harmonically matching the historical structure of the village. Beatrix und Markus Hebestreit provide seats for 45 guests on to levels as well as an idyllic inner courtyard for 50 people.

The focus on wine is guaranteed by the 80 sparkling wine and wine positions, a third of which is changed every three months to offer maximum variety. The gastronomical offer is completed by German cuisine with French elements. The friendly service including great wine knowledge combined with upper class cuisine was the reason for the jury’s nomination.

Daetwyl Winery

The winery Daetwyl is a classical example of a Rhine-Hessian foursided yard. Beside a medieval living tower and defense tower, a romantic "cow chapel" and a wide spread cellar vault a day laborer's house from the 19th century exists there. After numerous construction measures it now serves as a guest room and holiday house. As an intentional contrast to the historic courtyard complex a modern wine-house was built as the new core of the winery for tastings and sale of in-house wines. The winery has been awarded in the context of „barrier-free Rhineland-Palatinate“.

Three guest rooms and the holiday house for up to 8 people enable a restful wine experience.  Topical wine tastings, enjoyment packages and guided tours or the participation in the grape harvest round off the innovative oenotouristic package as a whole of the Dettweiler family.

Meyerhof Winery

The classical middle-class family-run business has been supplemented by a small „wine paradise“ since 2014 –  a combination of guest house, winery and event location. To enjoy wine and dine from the vineyard kitchen in a relaxed atmosphere the Hammer family has initiated the event series „Wine meets…“. The comprehensive service is rounded off with an e-bike hire service, motorbike tours led by the winemaker himself and hiking tours through the vineyards of Flonheim.

The Rheinhessenvinothek in Mainz offers Wines not only from German Rheinhessen but from all the Great Wine Capitals, served in a 150 year old former magazine building, earning it the global Best Of Wine Tourism award for Wine Tourism Services in 2017.
