Gau-Algesheimer Goldberg (Golden hill of Gau Algesheim)
As valuable as gold: mineral Rieslings
No, you cannot mine for gold here. Unless you are a winegrower. Because the vines from this single vineyard produce great wines. The name does not actually refer to a precious metal, but to the general appreciation of the soil. Heavy, sandy loam soils mix with lime marl and calcareous clay. This gives the Riesling in particular an unmistakable minerality and tension. In October, the people of Gau-Algesheim invite you to the "Fest des Jungen Weines" (engl. Festival of young wine”) on the market square (Rheinhessen AUSGEZEICHNET).
