Soonwald-Nahe - Nature Reserve



The growing area Nahe – diversity and holiday fun

Wine country Nahe – that is approximately 4.000 hectares vine surface, on the Nahe from  Martinstein to Bingen and in the valleys of the Guldenstream, Gräfenstrean, Glan and Alsenz rivers. The types of vine grown here are very diverse: Riesling, Rivaner and Silvaner as well as Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris are the leading white wines. The red types are foremost represented by Dornfelder and Portugieser. There is something for everyone who loves wine.

Vineyards on great foundations

A moving geology has given the wine country Nahe its enormous soil diversity: quartz and slate soils at the lower Nahe; porphyry, melaphyre and mottled sandstone at the middle of the Nahe; around Bad Kreuznach decomposition soils and clay overlays of sandstone, loess and clay. Not to forget the precious stones in the vicinity of Idar-Oberstein.

But not only the excellent locations speak for the quality of Nahe wines, the balanced mild climate and the dedication of the vintagers in the vineyards and wine cellars also play an important role.

Connoisseurs agree: Nahe vintages have great potential in fruit, flavour and content.
