Darwin's Daughter

A place for searching, finding and discovering

DARWIN'S DAUGHTER is the ideal destination for all travellers looking for something special. If you go treasure hunting in the shop, you are guaranteed to find what you want – no matter whether you are looking for good friends, your loved ones back at home or for yourself. The shop offers a variety of things – big and small, beautiful and fine, individual and exclusive – all waiting to be discovered. DARWIN'S DAUGHTER at Rheinstraße 11 is a treasure trove with plenty to offer, from delicate design objects to selected home accessories and stylish fashion items. Who can resist it?

Sanja and Bato – the guardians of beautiful treasures

In the world of beautiful things, Sanja and Bato, a couple and business partners who have a feel and passion for anything special, always stay on the right track. Before an item is added to the beautiful collection at DARWIN'S DAUGHTER, it has to be discovered, critically considered and, ultimately,  deemed to be sufficiently special by the couple. And this is something that Sanja and Bato are really proud of in their very successful shop.

DARWIN'S DAUGHTER on an exciting voyage

All of Darwin's voyages were about discovery. Like DARWIN'S DAUGHTER, too. But completely different discoveries. While the famous father did research, observed nature and collected exhibits in order to develop great theories, his little daughter travelled and discovered the world with open eyes, enjoying places and moments, and being surprised by everything and anything beautiful. Fine fabrics, gorgeous jewellery, delicate bowls, artfully crafted furniture – all of which were so much more exciting than her father's dried beetles and preparations. But, best of all, her suitcases were also so much bigger and filled with surprises when she finally landed here …

Gemstone boutique

Gemstone boutique – the power and beauty of natural stones

The small boutique in Drosselgasse sells a very special selection of jewellery, ranging from costume to unique handmade pieces made of precious stones and silver. You will find your own personal favourite stone set in an elegant piece of jewellery here. Whether you buying something for yourself or as a gift, it is guaranteed to be a timeless and unforgettable item. Be inspired by our large selection and personal advice.

Family business with passion

My decision to open the boutique in Drosselgasse was based on my love of jewellery design, the region and the people here. I have always been fascinated by the liveliness and joviality of Drosselgasse. And, although I originally trained to become a lawyer, jewellery is my passion, and my heart belongs in Rüdesheim on the Rhine. I want the people from different nations who visit us daily in Drosselgasse to feel these emotions, too, and take home an unforgettable memory of their visit.

History becomes the present

The power of gemstones has been known for thousands of years and has a rich history in the region. Hildegard of Bingen and the queens and kings of the region already used the power of gemstones. Our family business was founded in the valley of the Middle Rhine in 1995. Traditionally, we have always focused on making gemstone jewellery in various shapes and colours. It is designed to accentuate the beauty of the gemstones and minerals. Today, as in the past, people are fascinated with gemstones and delighted by their beauty.

Lady Marleen

Radiant character: LADY MARLEEN

Although a small shop, LADY MARLEEN is the place to go if you’re looking for something charming – you will find some very special lamps here.

The attractive little lamps are what make the shop special. Because at LADY MARLEEN they are not only presented in the best-possible light, but have very charming designs. Each of the “little ladies” is made entirely of wood, hand-painted and produced in limited numbers. The young lady wearing the attractive dress also proves herself to be strong, because she proudly carries her umbrella as a lamp shade in the wind. She is not only extremely elegant, but radiates light, even in stormy times.

Sanja loves Audrey Hepburn and Mary Poppins

... and exclusive accessories, of course. It was only a matter of time until she and the little lady found each other.

Sanja adores looking for beautiful things. Both as a collector and businesswoman, because she and her partner Bato are owners of DARWIN's DAUGHTER and have thus created a place in Rüdesheim where people on the look out for sophisticated accessories are guaranteed success. LADY MARLEEN is now another interesting stop for shoppers, but for people who are romantic or nostalgic and fall for the magic of special things.

A little story about a little lady

The fantastic story of LADY MARLEEN is a short, but almost true love story:

The young lady got dressed up and escaped from her strict governess to meet Cedric, her fiancé, at the pier in Le Havre. At the dead of night and secretly, because unfortunately Cedric – a dashing officer on the Calcutta Line – was not quite in keeping with her rank. It was dark, and suddenly a stiff breeze got up, as the steamer finally arrived after a long wait. Fortunately for the lovers, little LADY MARLEEN’s fluttering dress with her bright umbrella could be seen from far away. A brightly glowing light, a rendezvous, happiness à deux …

Our Vinothek is located in the historical Gasthaus Winzerkeller, directly at the top of Drosselgasse. We sell superior-quality “Prädikat” wines and very good wines from different winegrowers of the Rheingau and Rheinhessen regions.

We are very flexible and happy to fulfil your wishes. We offer wine tasting sessions in different languages.

Vinothek Winzerkeller or Lubo’s Vinothek

"All you need is love!" Or wine? Or all you need is love and wine. My name is Lubo. Motivated by my love of wine and with many years of experience in gastronomy and the wine trade, I opened our Vinothek in 2015. My wife Maria has been supporting me in sales for two years. Our philosophy is to work closely with our winegrowers to make wine tasting a genuine experience for our guests. We strive to pass on the secrets of wine with simple explanations, love and humour. And with expertise. We are both certified consultants for German wine.

The "Gude" cellar

In 2015 I plucked up all my courage and invested my entire energy into opening our Vinothek under the motto: "If you do what you love, you will be happy and fulfilled". Since good wine finds the right "owners" very quickly, we have been able to win more and more satisfied customers year after year. We have developed two collections based on the most popular wines among our customers: the "Gude Kollektion", which consists of dry and Auslese Rheingau Riesling wines as well as Rheingau Pinot Noirs, or “Spätburgunder” in German, and the "MD Kollektion", which is made up of the most popular superior-quality “Prädikat” wines, such as “Eiswein”. We ship our wines worldwide.

The Drosselhof | Vinothek

Vinothek in the Drosselhof – high-quality wines from the region

....especially from the Rheingau premium-quality VDP vineyards, such as Schloss Vollrads or Schloss Johannisberg. You can purchase fine wines at this central location during your visit to Rüdesheim am Rhein. Our rich and fruity Auslese and Beerenauslese vintage wines as well as Eisweins are also popular with our customers. We also provide a shipping service.

Two generations – the oldest wine tavern and restaurant

Born in Paris, Lydie Roger lived in Australia and yet has remained true to Rüdesheim am Rhein and "her" tavern since 1970. Working with Sören Kunze, as representative  of the younger generation, and the experienced team, we enjoy welcoming guests from near and far ... together with a bird sitting permanently on the roof of the tavern – our thrush, the symbol of Drosselgasse.

The historical Drosselhof is the birthplace of Rhineland joviality.

Historically, Drosselgasse only provided lodging for Rhine sailors, but from 1860 the Drosselhof developed from a small-scale seasonal wine bar into a fully fledged wine tavern, and was already awarded a star by the Baedecker travel guide which described it as "very popular". The landlord knew that the jovial singalong in his restaurant was attracting visitors in droves. The singing was so popular with the guests in this sole wine tavern in the alley that in 1883 a song was written especially for the Drosselhof, contributing substantially to the fame of Drosselgasse. During the Second World War, in November 1944, a bomb attack left the alley in rubble and ashes – only the Drosselhof was spared!

QuerfeldWein

ErlebnisReich – You will experience something here

QuerfeldWein offers great tours of the vineyards in addition to its Vinothek. As it is ideally located opposite the cable car, the tours start with a ride over the top of the vines. On their walk back through the vineyards of Rüdesheim, the guests enjoy a glass of Riesling at a beautiful panoramic viewpoint and learn everything they need to know about the Rhine-Main region.

The Climentis

Astrid and Kai Climenti are "genuine" Rüdesheimers and very strongly rooted in the region. They are the third generation running the family business.<br /> Astrid, mother to Kai, has been running the business with a large dose of innovation and even more passion for 30 years.

Kai joined the family business 10 years ago. Before doing so, he trained as a winegrower and worked as a freelancer running an event location, gathering experience which has been useful for setting up the QuerfeldWein and QuerfeldHeim businesses. As your local contact, he is delighted to represent the virtues of the region.

Simone Schuld started as assistant to the management. Guests at QuerfeldHeim are looked after by a competent contact person on site.

Former prison from 1806 - 1904

At the beginning of 1997, the restaurant was given a facelift and renamed "Bollesje" (word for prison in Hessian dialect). The "QuerfeldWein” Vinothek, a wine boutique, was added in 2009. It is located in the former stable in the building’s inner courtyard.
