Riesling and pinot noir – wines from the rheingau

Our Riesling and Pinot Noir wines are grown on the slopes of the upper Rheingau and the world-famous Assmannshäuser Höllenberg. The slate soils of the Rheingau region give the wine its characteristic taste.


Our winery is considered small with approx. 2 hectares of cultivation area.

Tradition and progress have come together here.

The Assmannshausen winery Konrad Berg & Sohn, now managed by Konrad Berg in the third generation, owns two hectares of the best locations such as Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg, Assmannshäuser Höllenberg and Lorcher Krone.

The layers of the wines

The locations in Rüdesheim, Assmannshausen and Lorch are exclusively steep slopes and more than 80% locations are "First Growths".

The aging of the wines

The Pinot Noirs are aged 100% in wooden barrels, partly also in barriques. The Rieslings are exclusively aged in stainless steel tanks.

Where our wines grow

  • Lorch

    A very high-quality and therefore extremely exciting little wine town, in the extreme west of the wine-growing region. A "vinea bonea" (good vineyard) is documented in a deed of donation from 1085. Due to the very different types of soil (e.g. quartzite, slate) we find very high-class Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, but also the rare Sylvaner with a fascinating charisma and very fine Gewürztraminer In the winery we have the "Lorcher Krone" vineyard. This is an extremely steep slope with pure slate soil. An expressive, almost ingenious Silvaner grows here.

  • Assmannshausen

    The small place with world renown in viticulture. As almost always in the Rheingau the proven wine history begins with a documentary mention church sources. Here in Aßmannshausen it was a document from the year 1108. It is of outstanding importance for viticulture in Aßmannshausen the Marienhausen monastery in nearby Aulhausen. The women's monastery of the Cistercians was founded during the lifetime of Bernhard von Clairvaux and was a "Shelter" of the important "Eberbach Monastery". The religious women is the Reclamation of the "Assmannshäuser Höllenberg" and its management many centuries to thank. This achievement is considered an important milestone female emancipation: “In the Rheingau, women are allowed to do even the most difficult things work independently".

    The quality of the "Assmannshäuser" is proverbial in the truest sense of the word. Representing numerous wine-savvy celebrities (including Bismarck, Goethe, fox, v. Zobelitz, Hornikel) writes Johann Carl Leuchs in 1829: "The red wines from Assmannshausen in the Rheingau are of great value, above all they have Rhine drawn, yes even before the Burgundy red wines the highest degree of strength." Equally famous is the health effect of the red Assmannshauser.

    The most famous vineyard is the "Assmannshäuser Höllenberg". The "Höllenberg", derived from the old German word "helda", an old Rheingau term for heap or steep slope. The "Höllenberg" lies in the valley cut away from the Rhine with a pure southern orientation and on the Rhine-facing side with a southwest orientation. The soil of the up to 65% steep vineyard is very homogeneous of violet-colored phyllite slate, which gives the wine a unmistakable taste. A special feature is also the nocturnal downdrafts from the wooded heights. The cool nights give an intense aroma and animating freshness. The steep slopes with the intense sunlight give strength and complexity to the wines. This natural conditions and the classic corn fermentation give the special "Terroir" of the red Aßmannshäuser Pinot Noir.

  • Rüdesheim

    The famous "Rüdesheimer Berg" vineyards are located in Rüdesheim "Rüdesheimer Berg Schloßberg" with the eponymous and dominant Landmark, the ruins of Ehrenfels The clearing of the steep slopes goes back to a decree by Archbishop Bardo of Mainz (anno 1040). Earlier were the vineyards with the so-called "mixed set", a Conglomeration of different historical grape varieties, planted. The Riesling dominant only since the middle of the 18th century. Only on foot can the astonished Viewers can see how steeply the "Schlossberg" falls down to the Rhine. It is difficult to believe that you can stand there, let alone work. The (quartzite) Soils are rocky and barren and dry. The sun beats down relentlessly rows of vines. The vines can only survive if they are very deep in the hard penetrate the ground and absorb even the last drop of water. root depths of more than 15 m have already been measured. The grapes are small and highly aromatic. Wine connoisseurs are rewarded with wines that are second to none search. They combine so many incredible qualities. You are focused and Filigree and highly aromatic and of animating freshness and enormous presence. And all in one glass.

The Wine Makers

Since 2001, the Rheingau oenologist Peter Perabo has been advising the winery on both external cultivation and cellar management.

As a team, the two friends have joined forces to develop the wines in a way that does justice to the respective multi-faceted terroir, elegantly and profoundly. These are wines with character, with "grip" as Peter likes to say, which are only bottled after a long period of maturing on the fine lees in early summer of the year following the harvest.
