The estate is located in the municipality of Serrig (Saar area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle
, It was founded in 1828 by an e-adventure forester and sold a generation later to the shipping company Hansen. His grandson built the imposing manor building on the Saarstein and ran the transport company in Trier from there. In 1906 the construction of a villa on the Saarstein, which now serves as a seat, was completed, from whose terrace you can enjoy a breathtaking view over Serrig and the Saar valley. The Second World War with the construction of the West Wall in Serrig changed the situation dramatically. There was only one administrator on the estate who had to vacate the house for military purposes. In 1956 the property was sold to Dieter Ebert. Together with cellar master Erwin Hoffmann, he made sure that the potential of the vineyards was used again and the estate was brought back to the old state. The estate has been managed by Christian Ebert, who had been responsible for the cellar since 1989, and his wife Andrea since 1994. Like his father, he runs a "traditional, but also close to nature and nature preserving" viticulture.
The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards in the privately owned Serriger location Saarsteiner Castle
, They are planted to 96% with Riesling, some Pinot Blanc (3%) and Rivaner (1%). There is only organic fertilization using compost, straw and horse manure. The yields from the steep slopes keep a low level of an average of 60 hl / ha despite the relatively dense planting, which, in addition to a short cut, is also due to the partly root-correct, old vines. In the cellar, whole grape pressing has been used for the most part since the 2000 vintage. The must is pre-clarified and mostly fermented with natural yeast. This is especially the case for wines that are not dry-aged. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, the expansion partly in the steel tank and partly in the large wood powder. The wines with residual sweetness have a white bottle label (otherwise yellow). In suitable years, high-quality products such as selection of dried berries and ice wines are also pressed. 50,000 to 60,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced that have been stored on the yeast for up to six years. The winery is a member of VDP
(Association of German quality wine estates).
