The southeast to southwest-facing vineyards at 220 to 300 metres above sea level with a slope gradient of 15 to 60% cover 15.5 hectares of vineyards on stony, heavily weathered clay-slate soil. Below this, the single vineyard Treppchen adjoins. Here, mainly the Riesling variety is cultivated. The Berres, Dr. Hermann, Lotz Klaus, Roth Andreas, S. A. Prüm and St. Anna wineries, for example, have shares in the site.
