Unique and impressive: Volcanic eruptions and powerful earth movements stirred up the subsoil along the Nahe so much that over 180 different soil formations were left over. This diversity is unique throughout Europe. There are 52 rock formations in the vineyards of Jakob Schneider alone, primarily of volcanic origin but also containing slate and river sediments in the subsoil. The smaller and more specific the origin of a wine, the more subtle is the blend of characteristics derived from the soil, climate, soil life, vine age, vintage and winegrower's activity.

Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle - approx. 8 hectare

A steep, quickly warmed south-facing slope with grey slate and volcanic rocks. Here we harvest our premium dry and top sweet wines. This is the Nahe location most highly rated by the experts. The wines from Hermannshöhle enjoy global renown!

Niederhäuser Klamm - approx. 6 hectare

The terrain structure is like a parabolic mirror and ensures hot temperatures in the summer and high degrees of maturity at this exceptional location. A perfect microclimate for sweet botrytis wines also prevails here. The soil is shaped by volcanic porphyry deposits with a high ore content.

Niederhäuser Rosenheck - approx. 17 hectare

Southwest-facing escarpment with solid slate subsoils. This is the perfect location for fine pinot noirs and dry, racy Rieslings to thrive.

Niederhäuser Felsensteyer - approx. 6 hectare

Situated between Niederhausen and Norheim. Largely weathered melaphyre soils with a high proportion of fine soil. Our Riesling grapes particularly benefit here from the heat emissions of the surrounding rock faces.

Norheimer Dellchen - approx. 6 hectare

Easily warmed volcanic hard rock and grey slate form the foundation for wines full of character and refinement. The many terraces with dry stone walls facilitate a significant grape ripening advantage.
