This traditional winery is located in the municipality of Eltville-Erbach in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The estate is located at the "Draiser Hof", which was built in 1141 by monks of the Cistercian Order of the Eberbach Abbey as a dependency (grange) for the cultivation of vineyards and farmland in Eltville and Erbach. The vineyard and the associated land were acquired by the family of the Barons zu Knyphausen in 1818. Today, Arne Wilken is responsible as the farm manager and cellar master.

The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards in the Hohenrain, Marcobrunn, Michelmark, Steinmorgen (Erbach), Sandgrub (Kiedrich) and Rheinberg (Eltville) vineyards. They are planted with the varieties Riesling (75%) and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) as well as a "Rheingauer Gemischter Satz" with the autochthonous, partly rare varieties Elbling, Gewürztraminer, Silvaner, Orléans (variety Gelber Orléans), Weißer Heunisch (Gouais Blanc) and Roter Riesling (the winery is one of the pioneers of the rare variety).

In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".
