Dear guest, dear Rhine-Hesse visitor, dear wine lovers,
we warmly welcome you at Espenhof – an idyll comprising a hotel, a wine restaurant and a winery. Espenhof exists since 1664. Wilfried and Heike Espenschied represent the 7th generation of a family business producing quality wines like the famous German Riesling, and international grape varieties like Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot noir. For half a decade we have been proud to offer cosy, Mediterranean style accommodation for our guests with true hospitality.
Espenhof is 70km (43 miles) south-west from Frankfurt/Main Airport and 30km (18 miles) from the federal capital of Rhineland Palatinate Mainz. If you take the exit Biebelnheim/Flonheim from the Autobahn A 63 you will reach our charming wine village Flonheim in 10 minutes. Likewise exit Bornheim/Flonheim from the Autobahn A 61.
In our à la carte restaurant we offer exclusive wines from our own winery. The chef de cuisine will surprise you with a regional and seasonal cuisine and gourmet highlights.

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 (Pinot gris) and Weisser Burgunder (Pinot blanc). If you are interested in tasting our wines you can call in our wine shop: Vinothek Monday to Saturday from 9.00 am till 6 pm.
Every Saturday we offer an official wine tasting followed by a cellar tour, duration 120 min. € 15.00
We offer two brands:
„espenhof“ which follows the quality measures of „Gutswein“ (yellowish label), „Ortswein“, „Lagenwein“ (both dark grey labels) 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 spontaneously with different amounts of skin contact and very little use of sulfit.
Leisure time recommendation:
Rhine-Hesse is the biggest German wine growing region; once you are here you will understand why. No matter which direction you look, all you can 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 beverages ready to go in a backpack for your hiking tour, costs are € 14.50 per person. As you will not find many gastronomic establishments along the hiking trail you may like the idea of having your food parcel with you.
We are looking forward to welcoming you!
Wilfried, Heike, Lena Marie and Nicolas and Laura Espenschied
& the Espenhof-Team
