Bischöfliches Weingut Rüdesheim

19 September 2017

The Bischöfliches Weingut in Rüdesheim is romantically situated in the Medieval monastery, where Saint Hildegaard of Bingen lived and worked for some years in the 12th century. It is a small uphill stroll from Rüdesheim's city centre, but well worth the trip if you are in the area as it is recommended as the best nearby winery by locals. That was also our experience when we visited in July 2017.

The winery has plots on the vineyards Rüdesheimer Klosterlay, Berg Roseneck, Berg Rottland and famous Assmannshausen.

On our visit this summer we visited the old cellar featuring modern equipment followed up by a tasting.
