900 Years of vineculture

Experience the winery and its domains on one of our numerous guided tours and enjoy our wines - directly in the bar or at home after a shopping in our wine shops.

Welcome at the vineyard of the former cistercian abbey!

The vineyard of the Eberbach Monastery, the latter of which was founded in 1136 by St. Bernhard of Clairvaux (Burgundy) has, through its tireless pursuit of quality, made wine history.

This centuries-old tradition has led the Eberbach Monastery to become the largest German estate, a tradition carried on after the monastery‘s secularization in 1803 through the Dukes of Nassau,

then beginning in 1866 as Royal Domain by the state of Prussia and since 1945 by the Federal State of Hesse as proprietor of the wine estate.

The Steinberg

300 meters in front of the monastery gate lies the world-famous Steinberg vineyard, which has been in sole possession of the wine estate since 1239. In 2008 Europe's most modern Riesling wine cellar was inaugurated alongside this vineyard.

Footpath from the Monastery to the Steinberg

From the monastery complex you can reach the Steinberg in 15 minutes by following the Bernhardus Path located near the bus stop.

The Experience of Nature in the Steinberg

Enjoy nature within the ”favorite vineyard of the monks” and discover this more than 30-hectare large vineyard by following a marked geological nature trail. In addition, from April to October, our wine stand invites you to enjoy a glass of noble Riesling wine while you rest and indulge in the fantastic view.
