The estate is located in the municipality of Walsheim in the German wine-growing region palatinate
, The estate, initially run by Karl Pfaffmann as a mixed agricultural enterprise, was completely converted to viticulture in 1964. Today the winery is run by Helmut Pfaffmann, son Markus has been responsible for the cellar since 1998 after studying viticulture and cellar management in Geisenheim. The vineyards cover 40 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Bischofskreuz and Herrenberg (Nussdorf), Hohenrain (Knöringen), and Silberberg (Walsheim). They are two thirds with the white varieties Riesling, Pinot Gris, Kerner, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Scheurebe, Huxelrebe and Ortega, and one third with the red varieties Dornfelder, Pinot Noir, Portuguese, Dunkelfeld, Merlot and St Laurent planted. The aim is a high quality of grapes through appropriate measures to reduce yields with appropriate pruning, leaf work and green pruning. The entire harvest is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The expansion is also carried out in tanks and partly in barriques. Most of the wines are aged dry. In suitable years, noble sweet predicates and ice wine are also pressed. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
