On the Rhine terrace near Dienheim some of the vineyards are very steep. Those along the break-off edge are oriented east to the Rhine and heat up already early in the morning.
The dominating soil type is a deep lime-rich calcareous clay with a high percentage of swellable clay. Once the vines have grown roots in the clay layers, they can become very old. Old vines are a guarantor for powerful wines with a very long cellar life.
Wines from Dienheim are fruity and substantial, with a lot of tension.
