Niersteiner Hipping 

Hipping is located in an exposed position on the Red Slope between Nierstein and Nackenheim at a height of 80 – 174 meters above sea level. The steep slope with a slope slopes in the direction of the Rhine, which is quite wide at this point, in a south-easterly direction. This is a red colored heavily weathered clay slate. The micro climate is influenced by the warmth of the extended Rhine, the intense morning sun and the heavily weathered red slate.

Centrally located in the Red Slope, the sedimentary rock of the clay slate in the upper area of ​​the hipping provides the highest minerality. There, the slate is less weathered and offers the vine roots a barren and stony substrate in the subsoil.

The bottom section is completely different: eroded clay slate here, the floors are correspondingly deep and water-storing. In drier years, the hippings’ feet provide the more sustainable and profound wines – in wet years, on the other hand, the steep slopes with up to 60 percent slope play their trump cards and produce the finest, mineral-inspired wines.

History: The HIPPING was called “Hupbuhl” around 1550 – it is believed that it could have been a goat hill, since Hippe means Middle High German goat and Buhl hill.
