The winery is nestled in the historic town center of Oestrich in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It has been family-owned since 1759. The winery, which is rich in tradition, is named after the grandfather of the current owner Désirée Eser Freifrau zu Knyphausen (graduate engineer for viticulture and oenology), who is already the tenth generation to run the business. She is supported by her husband Dodo Freiherr zu Knyphausen. The company regularly sponsors a wide variety of target groups, such as the promotion of art and culture, medical research, environmental protection, children's and youth work, and association work. The entire production takes place under the aspect of sustainability and energy saving measures. Water heating, heating and electricity generation are solar assisted.
