Nahe Viticulture Map
Nahe Viticultural Region
The Nahe Valley offers varied and picturesque landscapes. The Nahe river runs 125 km from the source in Saarland at Nohfelden to its estuary near Bingen in the Rhine. It divides the Rhine in Upper Rhine and Middle Rhine there. The amazing Nahe-Radweg (Nahe cycle trail) leads past the entire route. This area is generally cooler than the others. But there are also very warm, dry sections and side valleys, which are shaped south and southwest. Near the popular Rotenfels there are steep slopes where the soil temperature often reaches up to 60 ° C. Otherwise, the vineyards are mainly flat or hilly. This wine-growing area has the largest variety of soil. It is presumed that there are over 180 varieties of soil that create a variety of flavors (terroir). Eight German wine queens come from this wine-growing region. Famous British landscape painter William Turner visited in 1817 the Rhine region and painted an aquarell of Bingen with the Drusus bridge in front. The sight is turned towards Rheingau to Klopp Castle and Ehrenfels Castle. At the age of 69, he visited the Rheingrafenstein and Ebernburg in Bad Münster am Stein and Bad Kreuznach.
