The Winery is headquartered in Deidesheim, in the heart of the Pfalz region, and it is active since 1700. This region, characterized by a long wine-making tradition (dating back to Roman times), is the warmest and least rainy region of  Germany. Bordering Alsace, it has a particular shape: east of the mountains of the Haardt, extends for 85 km in length, while it is only a few miles wide. It is the second largest German wine-growing region to the surface and since 2008 is the area of greatest Rieslings in the world. Wines of the region are an unique blend of elegance and power, perfectly ripe in the fruit. In fact, they are characterized by a recognizable mineral favored by the presence of volcanic soils, rich in extrusion materials, such as granite and porphyry.

The company, specializing in the production of large dry wines, until the mid-90s  dedicated to Riesling the totality of its production, real specialists in this matter.
