The Little Staircase of Erden
Certified Vineyard

This vineyard is so steep that stone steps were built into the hillside long ago to help workers reach the vines. The iron-infused, red slate soil produces wines that are muscular and complex, with intense minerality on the finish. Wines from Erdener Treppchen are more like a powerful, hard-body rock climber than the graceful ballet dancer of Wehlener Sonnenuhr. They benefit greatly from a few years in the bottle to develop fully.


Volcanic activity and the ancient meanderings of the Mosel River unearthed a striking band of red slate at Erden.
