The winery is located in the municipality of Nackenheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. It was founded in 1890 by the Mainz banker Carl Gunderloch (1846-1935). He is considered a pioneer of quality winegrowing on the Rhine and was a co-founder of today's VDP. Until 2015, Gunderloch's great-great-granddaughter Agnes ran the winery with her husband Fritz Hasselbach. Since then, it has been run in the sixth family generation by son Johannes Hasselbach. He is assisted by cellar technician Markus Weickert. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites of Pettenthal (Nierstein) and Rothenberg (Nackenheim) in the Roter Hang (Rhine Front). They are planted with 85% Riesling and smaller numbers of Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Sauvignon Blanc and Blauer Portugieser. Management is carried out under the premise of the house, "that it must never be our goal to impose our will on nature"
