Visit to Enjoy Magnificent Views of the Taunus or Donnersberg

Most of their vineyards are present on the slopes of Petersberg from where one can enjoy magnificent views of the Taunus or Donnersberg. The vines are planted here in multiple small plots that create a unique microclimate suitable for the growth and cultivation of grapes. The soil is clay-based and has a lot of minerals. The winery tries to protect nature and its land and vines so that the grapes are high-quality, making wines with great minerality and structure.

 

Wines from Gifted Rheinhessen Terrain

The main grape varieties grown at Ernst Bretz Winery include Riesling, Spätburgunder, Grauer Burgunder, Weißer Burgunder, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay. The workers manually pick the best grapes and use them to make their famous red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines. Fermentation in steel tanks with aging in wood barrels gives the wines an intense flavor and complexity typical of the gifted Rheinhessen terrain.
