The winery is located in the municipality of Bahlingen (Kaiserstuhl area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. The name was given after the typical volcanic rocks that are widespread in the Kaiserstuhl region. The two owners Roland Treffeisen and Willi Würstlin are management consultants in their main profession. Their families have been cultivating vines in Achkarren and Bahlingen for several generations. The vineyards cover just under a hectare of vines in the single vineyard sites Schlossberg (Achkarren), Silberberg (Bahlingen) and Steinfelsen (Bickensohl). They are planted with the varieties Blauer Spätburgunder (0.5 ha), Grauburgunder (0.2) and Weißburgunder (0.2 ha). Great attention is paid to grapes that are as ripe and healthy as possible. The hand-selected grapes are processed quickly and pressed gently. After the classic maceration, the red wines are matured for about 12 months in barriques. Different oak woods are used and a proportion of new wood is used every year.
