Travelling South along the Rhine, a short distance from Nierstein, an old village of Mettenheim is on the edge of the broad Rhine valley at the foot of the rising slopes. The warm soil structure of loam, with underlayers of clay, in the Schlossberg slope, and sandy soil of the Goldberg offer excellent conditions for viticulture. It is here that the Schäfer family have been cultivating vines since 1709.
