The winery is located in the municipality of Mannweiler-Cölln in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. Its origins lie in a grain mill dating back to the 13th century, which was acquired by Karl Linxweiler in 1898 and converted into a winery. In 1964, the mill, which had been used as a cellar until then, was converted into a residential building and the Linxweiler family devoted themselves exclusively to viticulture and the commission trade with bulk wine. Peter and Martina Linxweiler took over the winery in 1986 and expanded it from 1.8 hectares to its current size.

The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyard sites Elkersberg (Alsenz), Rosenberg (Cölln), as well as Aspenberg and Beutelstein (Oberndorf). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (50%), Pinot Blanc, Silvaner, Traminer and Chardonnay, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir and Portugieser. The vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of organic viticulture; in accordance with the guidelines of the organic association Naturland. The wines are predominantly vinified dry. They also produce noble brandies (pomace, yeast) and bottle-fermented sparkling wines.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
