The winery is located in the municipality Johannisberg (District of Geisenheim ) in the German growing area Rheingau, Emperor Napoleon (1769-1821) had 1806 in his campaign against Prussia the Castle Johannisberg and handed over to his Marshal François-Étienne-Christophe Kellermann (1735-1820), the Duke of Valmy, for administration. But from 1808 to 1810 there were three bad grape harvests. In 1811, the enterprising wine merchant Gottlieb Mumm (1782-1852) from the famous Frankfurt bankers and trading family PA Mumm made the offer to purchase the entire next wine harvest from Schloss Johannisberg before the harvest. The Marshal was glad of the alleged Hasardeur, because the offered 32,000 guilders were good money for a possibly bad harvest again.

But Gottlieb Mumm had the unlikely luck of the daring. The legendary as 1811er designated vintage went as comet vintages into the wine history. Gottlieb Mumm invested the profit of 60,000 liters of this Century wine in the purchase of exclusive vineyard locations in Johannisberg and thus laid the foundation for today's winery. Incidentally, Gottlieb Mumm founded the famous Champagne House in 1827 spunk in Reims. But since the confiscation by France after the First World War (1914-1918), this company is no longer owned by the family.

In 1873 the family Mumm was raised to the peerage and used since then the original title Mumm von Schwarzenstein. As a family tribe, an artificial castle ruin was built above Johannisberg. The castle should serve as a summer house, as well as have a character house character for the family Mumm. Since 2004, Schwarzenstein Castle belongs to a businessman from Mainz. After a complete renovation of the castle in 2005, there are three restaurants and a hotel.
