Oppenheim

The amphitheater-shaped sites around Oppenheim are not directly influenced by the Rhine. Heat collects there during the day, allowing the grapes to ripen harmoniously. Unlike in the area around Nierstein, where red slate soils dominate, the soils around Oppenheim are highly calcareous. The mostly cooler limestone substrate, taken together with the warm days, culminates in an unbelievable tension in the wine.
