Besides Riesling, the Webers have some parcels of Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) and Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder), the latter one of the best examples on the Saar and Mosel. It’s a rare dry red wine in that it naturally doesn’t go through malolactic conversion and, like all their wines, is never chaptalized. Like the Weissburgunder, the red wine has—as one would expect—a mineral taste, lean texture, and wonderful bite. It reflects the Saar quite well. Erich's wife, Marita, who is from Niedermennig and is a great cook, likes to prepare home-cooked meals and loves to drink their Spätburgunder. During her studies near Stuttgart, in Württemberg, she enjoyed the local cuisine, as well as the Swabian reds for everyday drinking.

The harvest is done in stages and all by hand, unlike some more famous VDP members with holdings here. For the most part, the Webers prefer en-bloc picking to making multiple passes through the same parcels. The small harvest team consists of family, friends, foreigners, and neighbors. Yields are small because of a relatively low-density planting and strict harvesting from old vines. Most importantly, the Webers believe in one flat cane per vine, no herbicides, no fertilizers, and little to no tillage. They do all the work themselves.
