The estate is located in the commune of Schweigen-Rechtenbach (Southern Wine Route area) in the German wine-growing region palatinate
, It was founded in 1964 by Friedel and Günter Scheu initially as a mixed company for agriculture and vine processing with less than one hectare of vines at that time. It has been managed by Klaus Scheu since 2009. The construction of a new vinotheque was completed in summer 2015. In addition to tastings, the modern building is also used for events. The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vineyards in the individual Schweigener Sonnenberg
, The varieties Riesling (around a third), Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Scheurebe and Gewürztraminer are cultivated with a planting density of around 6,000 vines per hectare. The majority of the area is located on the French territory in Alsace in the sub-areas Raedling and Strohlenberg, which earned the owner the name "The frontier worker", which should also refer to the style and expansion of the wines.
Most of the consistently reduced grapes with an average of 45 hl / ha are harvested by hand in several passes. The vinification takes place traditionally. The wines are made of 80% stainless steel, the rest in made from oak wood. They are marketed in the lines of estate wines, local wines (best vineyards) and site wines (best plots). A specialty is the wine named "Philipp Cuntz" after the grandfather of today's manager. This discovered a vine in the vineyards, which differed significantly in the appearance and taste of the wine. After growing, this wine has been made from it ever since. The customer structure is divided into private customers (30%), retail (60%) and catering (10%). Exports are made to Belgium, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, the USA and Japan. The winery is a member of the Association Südpfalz ConneXion.
