Udenheimer Kirchberg (Church Mountain of Udenheim)
The three sisters and the diversity of grape varieties
A picturesque church stands on the Udenheimer Berg. And it goes without saying that it also gives its name to the single vineyard site. Various grape varieties grow here on sand and clay marl. The church is surrounded by the legend of the three sisters who inherited a lot of money. Each of them wanted to build a church. They divided the inheritance with the help of a bushel measure. Since one of the sisters was blind, she was cheated on. When the blind sister noticed the fraud, she cursed the two sisters' churches on the Petersberg and on the Nazarienberg near Mommenheim. In fact, according to legend, only the church of the blind sister, the one in Udenheim is still there today. The oldest part is the three-storey west tower, which dates from the 12th century.
