The winery is nestled in the historic centre of Oestrich in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It has been in the family since 1759. The traditional winery is named after the grandfather of the current owner Désirée Eser Freifrau zu Knyphausen (Dipl. Ing. für Weinbau und Oenologie), 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 associations. All production is carried out with sustainability and energy-saving measures in mind. Hot water, heating and electricity generation are solar-assisted.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
