The traditional winery with a centuries-long history is located in the municipality of Wallhausen in the German wine-growing region Near, It is the oldest family winery in Germany continuously owned by the family. The oldest known document about the Dalberg family's vineyard ownership (which was then still called Weierbach) comes from a goods list from the year 1200 called "Wingert in Summelachen" (today Sommerloch), or 1217 vineyard on "Breitwiesen". The great-grandmother of Felix Prinz zu Salm-Salm, the current owner, was the last Dalberg. In 1911 she married Prince Franz zu Salm-Salm. Michael Prinz zu Salm-Salm, the father of Prince Felix zu Salm-Salm, was President of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter), whose long-standing member is the company. The owners are Felix and Michael Prinz zu Salm-Salm, with Felix Prinz zu Salm-Salm as manager.
