H.O. Spanier rescued the Frauenberg, once a famous vineyard, out of oblivion and back into the consciousness of wine lovers. Constant winds blow across this south‐facing hillside atop a ridge of pure limestone, exposing the grapes to conditions not unlike a wind tunnel. Year after year, we can count on a late harvest at optimal ripeness. Since 2001, the uncompromisingly linear wines from this site have reflected H.O.’s vision and rekindled the reputation and glory of the Frauenberg.
