Weingut Schloss Westerhaus, Ingelheim am Rhein

High above Ingelheim am Rhein, Westerhaus Castle is situated on a limestone rock. The first documented mention is in 1408. The actual foundation of Schloss Westerhaus is probably much older and is possibly connected with the imperial palace of Charlemagne in Ingelheim in the 8th century.

In 1900, Heinrich, one of Adam Opel's five sons, acquired the estate, which until the beginning of the 19th century was owned by the Counts of Ingelheim as a fiefdom of the Elector Palatinate. Today the estate is managed in the fourth generation by the great-great-granddaughter of the Rüsselsheim car manufacturer, Ivonne Gräfin von Schönburg-Glauchau.

At the foot of the estate - only a short walk away - are the rows of vines of the castle's own individual vineyard "Ingelheimer Schloss Westerhaus".

Where sharks swam and manatees bathed for millions of years, today you will find the very best conditions for elegant Burgundy and Riesling wines. The Ingelheim Burgundy wonder is currently experiencing a renaissance and Schloss Westerhaus is a major player with a Burgundy content of around 70%!

Since 1983 the winery has been a member of the Association of German Prädikat Wine Estates. (VDP).
