The name of the slopes flanking the Village: Goldtröpfchen ( little drop of gold), is a splendid south- facing site protected from winds by its location on a loop in the river, the soil is quite complex, compose of quartz with stony clay and slate, rich in iron oxide, it is famous for gently honeyed wines, with great fragance and very mineral in character, here half the wines are classified as great growth and the other half as first growth. The vast plantation across the river is known as Piesporter Treppchen.
Spätlese: literally means late harvest, wines of higher quality harvested at the end of the autumn, from grapes which have been allowed to ripen longer than usual, increasing the intensity and the flavors of the fruit.
