The steep vineyards, facing south to southwest, at 110 to 180 metres above sea level with 30 to 60% slope, comprise 29 hectares of vineyard area.

Smelting furnaces found during the excavations confirm the mining of silver ore, from which the name of the mountain and the single vineyard site is most likely derived. A second variant is based on the name Selberberg, which is the dialectal expression for sage.
