The winery is located in the municipality of Johannisberg (part of Geisenheim) in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The winery is owned by Guenter Schulz, with Verena Schöttle as the farm manager and cellar master. It all began in 2000 with a first wine made from bought-in Pinot Noir grapes. Subsequently, vineyards and fallow land were acquired and special methods were tested and developed in the vineyard and cellar to achieve the desired wine style. In 2010, the company moved from the Schamari Mill to a new facility in Johannisberg. The vineyards cover eight hectares of vines in the very steep single vineyard sites of Hölle (Johannisberg), Kläuserweg (Geisenheim), Berg Roseneck, Berg Rottland, Bischofsberg, Drachenstein and Klosterlay (Rüdesheim), Frankenthal and Höllenberg (Assmannshausen), Bodental-Steinberg, Kapellenberg, Krone, Schlossberg and Pfaffenwies (Lorch), and Dachsberg (Winkel).
