Wine is omnipresent in the Hohenlohe District. The grapes – Riesling, Silvaner, Trollinger, Schwarzriesling, Lemberger and Dornfelder – thrive on the mineral-rich shell-limestone soil of the sunny slopes of the Kocher and Jagst valleys, as well as on the keuper terraces to the south of Oehringen. Mighty wine presses bear witness to the ancient winemaking tradition, which dates back to Roman times. A stroll through the vineyards in the autumn presents the vines in all colours with the heavy dark blue or golden grapes hanging in between.
Many of the wine growers have joined forces in cooperatives and, together with the private estates, produce wines and sparkling wines of the finest quality. 'Verrenberger Füstenfass', Eschelbacher Schwobajoergle', 'Niedernhaller Distelfink', 'Ingelfinger Kasirmirle', 'Heuholzer Dachsteiger', 'Michelbacher Gaewele' and 'Geddelsbacher Schneckenhof' are not only wonderful wines but also an important part of the region's history.
