Fritz’s Riesling (named for world-renowned winemaker Fritz Hasselbach at the Gunderloch winery) grows in a very small and special part of Rheinhessen called the “Roter Hang”. Meaning the “red hill” after its red slate soil, Roter Hang is located between the villages of Nackenheim and Nierstein and 20 kilometers south of the city of Mainz.

The vineyards are very close to the river Rhein on steep slopes facing south-east. The combination of four factors—the red slate soil, the closeness to the river, great sun exposure and the steepness of the vineyards—are the perfect combination to produce Fritz’s Riesling, one of best values in our book.
