The estate is located in the community Billigheim (area Southern Wine Route) in the German wine-growing region palatinate

The philosophy is: Best quality and typicity, always looking for improvements - detached from short-lived trends
. The quality pyramid consists of three lines. The "Gray Line" forms the basis, the "Red Line" includes wines from traditional grape varieties with some layer information and the "Black Line" with the Spitzengewächsen from some very old vineyards best locations with a maximum of 5,000 l / ha yield. For the white wines is largely a reductive expansion
in steel tank, with spontaneous fermentation
and Barrique use
is experimented. The red wines are generally mashed. The Pinot Noir is aged in large oak barrels and sometimes up to 24 months in oak barrels. The premium wines are the spontaneously fermented Riesling "Venus hump" with a long yeast store (4,500 l / ha) and the Francophile Pinot Noir "Venus hump" from 40-year-old, dense-berry vines, which matures after nine days of mash fermentation in barrique from largely Palatinate oak (4,000 l / ha ). It is also bottle fermented and grape juice produced. The winery is a member of the Riesling association.
