The estate is located in the community Randersacker (area Maindreieck) in the German wine-growing region Franconia
, The name goes back to a community of heirs around 1910. After the death of the former owners, their children and heirs did not divide the winery contrary to the usual "Franconian Real Division". Rather, the vineyards were managed together and the wines marketed under the name "Schmitt's children" together. Today's owner Karl Martin Schmitt is considered one of the quality pioneers in Franconia. After studying viticulture in Geisenheim
and his internship also abroad, son Martin Johannes joined the company.
The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Pfülben
, They are planted with the varieties Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Riesling, Domina, Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Scheurebe and Rieslaner. For the aging and storage of traditional oak barrels and stainless steel tanks are used. Small batches of selected white and red wines are aged in barriques. With the high-class wines special value on the clear expression of the origin ( terroir
) placed. In the simpler wines is omitted a position indication. Much of the Bocksbeutel bottles
is closed with screw cap. It also produces bottle-fermented sect. The winery is a member of VDP
(Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter) and one of the five Franconian TRIAS wineries
