The winery is located in the municipality of Dittelsheim-Hessloch (Wonnegau area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. Its origins date back to 1173, when a vineyard was founded in Hessloch by the Cistercians of the Otterberg monastery. The monks had to leave their monastery in 1553 due to the Peasant Wars. From 1645 onwards, the estate was managed by the Michel family's ancestors and finally acquired by purchase in 1780. After studying oenology in Geisenheim and practical experience in New Zealand and South African wineries, the winery is now run by the eighth generation of the Michel family, Ulrich Michel, and his wife Karen, who is trained as an agronomist.
