Frauenstein looks back on several centuries of wine history. Wine growing has been handed down since the early middle ages and wine has been cultivated at least since the end of the 12th century. The wine growing area covers 52 hectares and is the second largest in Wiesbaden. The velvety Pinot noir, whose quality is on a par with the Assmannshäuser red wines and the fruity, classy Riesling wines were already enjoyed by the lords of the castle Frauenstein. The castle remains a popular place to visit in the wine town to the present day. Also many farms with wine property in the area have largely maintained their original appearance and are worth a visit.
One further special feature of Frauenstein is the Europe Vineyard at the entrance to the town near the Grorother Hof. Planted with the types of grapes of all European countries this documents the area's affinity to the European wine growing neighbours.
Frauenstein is known for growing fruit with a cultivated area of approximately 79 hectares. This is mainly due to the fact that the wine village turns into a sea of blossoms every year thanks to the many fruit trees.
The terroir name is derived from the property ownership title of church and nobility. As soil we find medium to deep loess loam as well as phyllite soils with additions of loess loam. In dry years there is often water stress. The wines of the wetter years are full of character with a harmonious, fruity acidity texture.
