The winery is located in the community of Eltville-Rauenthal in the German Rheingau wine region. It was founded in 1928 by Jacob Albus as a pure winery. Today it is managed in the third generation by Dietmar and Beate Albus, who are supported by their two sons Stefan and Matthias and daughter Christina. Since the 2006 vintage, the wines have been marketed under their own management. The vineyards comprise six hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Langenstück, Rothenberg and Wülfen (Rauenthal). They are 95% planted with Riesling andPinot Noir. In every second row, permanent greening is carried out with sowings in the open lane in spring. Quality measures are short pruning and targeted defoliation. After fermentation with pure yeast, the wines are stored for a long time on full yeast with weekly stirring and later bottling. They are aged in stainless steel or wooden barrels. Premium wines are "Edition Stefan trocken" and "Spätlese trocken" (old vines). We also produce bottle-fermented sparkling and semi-sparkling wines (Rheingauer Leichtsinn).
