The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The "Episcopal wineries Trier" headquartered in Trier emerged in 1966 by the merger of the previously independent wineries of the shareholders. The partners are "Hohe Domkirche Trier" (founded in 1851), the "episcopal seminary Trier" (founded in 1773) and the "Episcopal Convent of Trier" (founded in 1840). All three have a very long tradition in viticulture and were among the founding members of the Association of Natural Wine Auctioneers (today VDP ), whose philosophy of producing wines with "natural alcoholic content", the Episcopal wineries Trier feel committed today. As Managing Director, Dr. Ing. Karsten Weyand the winery. Johannes Becker is responsible for oenology; Winery managers are Klaus Backes and Stephan Bigus.

The Episcopal wineries Trier originate around 100 hectares of vineyards. Since 2003 also belongs the winery Friedrich-Wilhelm Gymnasium to the possession. The wineries are together with about 130 hectares of vineyards Moselle, Saar and Ruwer are represented in numerous prime locations. For example, on the Moselle pharmacy (Trittenheim) Domprobst and Heaven (Graach) Goldtröpfchen (Piesport) podium (Earth), Würzgarten (Ürzig) and Matheisbildchen ( Bernkastel ). On the Saar it is the individual layers Hofberg (Falkenstein), Altenberg (Kanzem) Kupp and Herrenberg (Ayl), as well as Kupp and Scharzhofberg (Wiltingen). And at the Ruwer these are the individual layers Marie wood (Eitelsbach), as well as Kehrnagel and Nies'chen (Kasel).

The highest priority in the production of the wines is quality and character. This includes the preservation of traditional craftsmanship techniques (harvested and selected by about 70% by hand) sustainable Viticulture as well as the respect for nature and for the people. The grapes are pressed on the Scharzhof on the Saar and on the Duisburger Hof on the Ruwer. The expansion of the wines takes place in the middle of the city center of Trier in the sprawling cellar vaults dating back to Roman times. The Episcopal wineries Trier have set themselves the task, the complex and labor-intensive Steep vineyards to preserve and protect the associated wine heritage along the three river valleys. This is not only an important economic factor for the region according to its objectives, but also of immeasurable value internationally.

The focus is around 90% on the Riesling, The rest are the white varieties Pinot Blanc ( Pinot Blanc ) and Elbling and the red varieties Pinot Noir ( Pinot Noir ) and St. Laurent, The quality hierarchy consists of the steps of the cathedral and slate collection as Guts- or varietal wines, Ortsweinen and single-layer wines. Each stage has its own label, for which in the cellar and single-layer wines found in the cellar a printing stone of the vintage 1902 of the Episcopal Seminary Trier served as a template. The expansion of the wines takes place in stainless steel or traditional-classic in 240 oak barrels as well as some double-barreled barrels without the addition of pure-breeding yeasts. High-quality Riesling wines and all Burgundy wines are generally fermented in the foot or double-piece barrels and expanded and then filled immediately before the next harvest on bottles. Some wines such as Réserven and Pinot Noir are sold in the fuder and double much longer vinified. In suitable years too Beerenauslesen. Trockenbeerenauslese and Eiswein vinified. There are also traditional bottle fermented sect, z. B. Scharzhofberger produced. In the treasury store many old Riesling vintages.
