The small but fine wine-growing area Rheingau offers one for the culture of the vine ideal microclimate and best soil conditions. The Rhine runs uninterruptedly almost one thousand kilometres from Basel up to its muzzle into the North Sea, in a northerly direction. With a short exception - the Rheingau. The Rheingau mountains force the river to a change in direction here. The vineyards falling in this region to the south stretch really to the sun. The king of the white wines, the Riesling, finds ideal local conditions for the unfolding of his fine fruity and elegant type of vine character on the multilayered weathering grounds with loess, loam and sand additions.
The wine- and cultural possession rich in tradition of the Rheingau, Schloss Vollrads also concentrates complete on these in the highest measure of a regional typical type of vine. In this half-round around the castle 60 hectares of vineyard are planted exclusively with Riesling shoots.
