The Erdener Treppchen (pronounced AIR-din-er TREP-shen) vineyard is so steep that long ago, stone steps were built into the hillside to enable workers to reach the vines. The iron-rich, red slate soil here produces densely packed wines with a firm mineral structure. Wines from the Erdener Treppchen are more like a powerful rock climber than the graceful ballet dancer of the Wehlener Sonnenuhr.

The wine is dense, intensely flavored and rich on the palate, but balanced by Riesling’s naturally crisp acidity and the muscular structure that comes from the red slate soil of the Erdener Treppchen vineyard.
