The estate is located in the municipality of Saulheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region Rheinhessen, It was founded by Jakob Walldorf in 1896. Today it is managed in the fourth family generation by Hans-Jürgen Dexheimer and Kerstin Walldorf-Dexheimer. The vineyards cover 18 hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Haubenberg, Hölle and Probstey (Saulheim), Geiersberg and Goldstückchen (Armsheim), and Kachelberg (Ensheim). They are planted with the white varieties Riesling, Kerner, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Scheurebe, Huxelrebe, Morio-Muskat and Ortega, as well as with the red varieties Portuguese, Pinot Noir, Dornfelder, Black Riesling, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The management takes place according to the philosophy of the house "by appreciation of the natural conditions" greening of the slopes and gentle vine care. The average yield in recent years has been 65 to 80 hectoliters / hectare.

The wine cellar, built in 1897, is divided into the areas of bottle, barrel and tank cellars. It is also used as an event room for wine tastings, art exhibitions, buffets, receptions, etc. Depending on the type of wine, the wines are traditionally aged in large wooden barrels and double-piece format, in steel tanks or in barriques. Fruity wines are pressed through classic vinification. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, secco (sparkling wines), brandies (wine, fruit) and liqueurs are also produced. Hand-painted wine and champagne bottles are offered as an individual service. Another special feature is the lease ( Rebstock sponsorship ) of two Pinot Gris vines with the annual yield of a total of four bottles of wine and one vine. A colorful range of products is offered in the in-house gift boutique. The winery is a member of Generation Riesling.
