Rheingau - German wine-growing region



The town of Hoch- heim am Main is also located in the Rheingau region. This wine town with its famous wines is the origin of the term “Hock” for Rhine wine which is still used in Eng- land today. The term probably became popular after Queen Victoria visited Hochheim in 1845. Due to the good taste of the Hochheim wines and the benefits to health attributed to them the phrase “a good Hock keeps off the doc!” had established itself rather quickly. Even a century ago wines from the Rheingau were among the most ex- pensive on wine lists throughout the world, and especially in England.
