Eberbach Monastery
Eberbach Monastery. The former Cistercian monastery in Eberbach dates back to a foundation in 1136. Already in the Middle Ages, the monastery had a stately vineyard estate of over 300 hectares, which was essentially leased out. Little is known about the grape varieties of this time. In the middle of the 15th century, the cultivation of the red grape varieties Pinot Noir and Blauer Hängling is documented. Before Riesling began its triumphant advance in the Rheingau in the 18th century, the white grape varieties Heunisch, Gelber Orleans and Traminer probably predominated. With the secularisation, the monastery's vineyards became state domains. Today, the Hessische Staatsweingüter Kloster Eberbach form the largest wine estate in Germany. Eberbach Monastery also became famous as the location for the filming of Umberto Eco's classic novel The Name of the Rose.
