well my grandparents are from that region but i don't know anyone personally from there. at least nobody i want to be related to. i've been there a couple of times myself and remember a nice vineyard in Nierstein but that's about all i can tell you about this. i'm from the north of germany so i can't really help you there.

I really want to hit Urziger Wurtzgarten, Niederberg Helden, Forster Ungeheuner, and a few others. Any ideas on a good (4 or 5 star) hotel in Rheingau region?

Indifan101, these places are in the western Germany, and are soem of the greatest vineyards areas in the world! A mesh of crazy soil and slate types, tradiotnal winemaking, and very steep cliffs.
