The winery is located in the municipality of Appenheim (area Bingen ) in the German growing area Rheinhessen, In the traditional family, viticulture has been practiced since the end of the 19th century. The foundation stone was laid by the grandparents Erwin and Magdalena Knewitz with the relocation to the current location. In 1976, under the leadership of Gerold Knewitz, wine was bottled for the first time. After studying oenology in Geisenheim and some practice stays, the company is run since 2009 in the third generation of Tobias Knewitz family with the focus on natural viticulture. He is supported by partner Corina Knorr and brother Björn. The saying, coined by the French writer Colette (1873-1954), is the motto of the house: Only wine allows man to understand the taste of the earth.

The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers donkey trail and hundred Guilder (Appenheim), Goldberg and St. Laurenzikapelle (Gau-Algesheim), Steinacker (Nieder-Hilbersheim) and Schlossberg (Ingelheim). Despite the diversity or individuality of the layers, these are optimally suited for the lead variety Riesling due to the commonality of the high lime content. They are with the white wine varieties Riesling. Sylvaner. Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc ( Pinot Blanc ) and Chardonnay, as well as the red varieties Pinot Noir ( Pinot Noir ) and St. Laurent planted. It is an environmentally friendly, natural management practiced.

After selective manual reading is done in part Whole bunch pressing, The fermentation takes place spontaneous with grape-yeasts. Depending on the type of wine, the wines are in the stainless steel tank, in the traditional big wooden barrel or in fermented and aged.
