Mittelrhein - German wine-growing region



The town of Bacharach has several distinctive steep slopes. According to an old saying the best wines are grown in Bacharach, and Pope Pius II had a barrel of Bacharach wine delivered to Rome every year. But there is also a very flat vineyard. It is situa- ted on a 680 by 150 metre island in the Rhine and is called “Heyles’en Werth” after its former owner Hans Heyles. Today the island is cultivated by a winemaking family from Bacharach. They do not only need strong legs like the steep slope vintners but also muscular arms as the island can only by reached by rowing boat.
