The winery is located in the municipality of Heilbronn in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg. The family's age-old winemaking tradition dates back to 1545. Since July 2013, the winery has been co-managed by Tobias (Geisenheim studies, practical experience in renowned wineries in Germany, Austria, France-Burgundy and New Zealand) and his brother Björn Heinrich (BW studies, cellar experience in Australia, marketing management). A wine tavern is attached. An ancient tree press in the immediate vicinity of the estate is worth seeing. The vineyards currently cover 12 hectares in the single vineyard sites Stiftsberg and Wartberg (Heilbronn). Red wine varieties such as Lemberger, Burgundy (Pinot Noir, Black Riesling, Samtrot, Clevner) and Trollinger are cultivated to 70%, and white wine varieties such as Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Scheurebe and Gewürztraminer to 30%. Since the beginning of the 1980s, environmentally friendly, natural viticulture has been consistently practised with permanent cover crop and fertilisation with compost, as well as the renunciation of artificial fertilisers, herbicides and insecticides.

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.
