Dear guest, dear Rheinhessen-visitor, dear wine lovers,

Since half a decade we are proud to offer cosy, mediterranean style accommodation for our guests with true hospitality.

Our family winery is run by Wilfried and Nico Espenschied, the 7th and 8th generation of wine producers. We focus on quality wines and produce estate bottled wines from 28 hectares of vine planted sites. Our main grape variety is Riesling, followed by Grauer and Weisser Burgunder, If you are interested in tasting our wines you may pass by in our wine shop: Vinothek Monday to Saturday from 9.00 am till 6 pm.
Every Saturday we offer an official wine tasting follwed by a cellar tour, duration 120min € 15,-
We offer two brands:
„espenhof“ which follows the quality measures of „Gutswein“ (yellowish label), „Ortswein“, „Lagenwein“ (both dark blue label) along with the VDP guidelines (although we are not a VDP member)
„nico espenschied“ (blue label) our second brand which shows more experimental features such as orange wines as one part of this portfolio. All wines ferment spontanously with different amounts of skin contact and very little use of sulfit.
Leisure time recommendation:
Rheinhessen is the biggest German wine growing region, once you are here you will understand why. No matter which direction you look, all you see is vineyard after vineyard. A short stroll or a long hiking tour is of course a must and absolutely recommended.
Please ask us to provide you with snacks and drinks ready to go in a backpack for your hiking tour, costs are € 14,50 per person. As you will not find many gastronomic places along the walking paths you may like the idea having your board with you.
We are looking forward to welcome you!
Wilfried, Heike, Lena Marie and Nico and Laura Espenschied
& the Espenhof-Team
