The winery is located in the municipality of Monzingen in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. Even J. Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) mentioned the excellent "Monzingen wine" in his wine notes. The Emrich family had already been cultivating wine on the Nahe since the middle of the 18th century. The estate was originally run as a mixed operation (agriculture, livestock, viticulture). From the mid-1960s, Wilhelm Schönleber (a native Swabian) and later his son Werner Schönleber restructured the business into a pure vineyard. The vineyard area grew from around two to ten hectares during this time. Today, the winery is run by Werner and Frank Schönleber. The three internal principles of the house regarding the wines are: 1. Drinking pleasure; 2. Honest, authentic, typical of the origin; 3. Site wines with a distinctive character.
