The winery is located in the municipality of Monzel (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine region. The owners, Mona Bastgen and Armin Vogel, are oenologists with a diploma in Geisenheim, who started to build up their own winery in 1993. Mona Bastgen brought in about two hectares of vineyard area from her parents' business. The vineyards comprise almost five hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Juffer Sonnenuhr(Brauneberg), Paulinshofberg (Kesten) and Weisenstein (Bernkastel-Kues). They are planted to 70% with Riesling, as well as the varieties Pinot Blanc, Regent, Early Pinot Noir and Pinot Noir. In contrast to the usual thinning out, the yield is limited by halving the grapes, which at the same time produces the desired loose berry-like grape material. Most of the Rieslings are matured in stainless steel, but also in traditional wooden barrels. For these, the traditional method is to use rather moderate alcohol. Only selected wines from highly ripe grapes are marketed as site wines under the names Juffer Sonnenuhr, Paulinshofberg and Weisenstein. The Gutsriesling "Blauschiefer" is a site cuvée.
