NACKENHEIMER Although Nackenheim is one of the smallest wine-producing villages in Rheinhessen, it has an excellent reputation for its wines and is proud of its historical background. It was here that the author Carl Zuckmayer was born. He devoted his play “der Fröhlich Weinberg” (the merry vineyard) to the village. Nackenheim is situated on the Rhine, neighboring to Nierstein. Both the Nackenheimer Rothenberg and Engelsberg as well as the Niersteiner Hipping are highly rated with their red sandstone shist slate soil, ideal for Riesling. The Schmitts-Kapellchen site consists of loamy soils, ideal for their chardonnay pinot varietals.
