The winery is located in the municipality of Thüngersheim (Maindreieck area) 12 kilometres down the river Main from Würzburg in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. The traditional winery was originally located in the historic centre of the village, the archway records the year 1604, and was operated as a mixed agricultural business including viticulture. In 1960, it was moved to the outskirts of Thüngersheim and Rudolf & Hannelore Hart converted it to viticulture and asparagus cultivation with gastronomy and a hotel. Since 1998, the business has been run by son Hans-Jürgen Hart and his wife Claudia. The hotel-restaurant "Winzerhof" is run separately by a tenant family. The vineyards cover seven hectares of vineyards in the single vineyards Benediktusberg (Retzbach), as well as Johannisberg and Scharlachberg (Thüngersheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Scheurebe, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Kerner and Huxelrebe, as well as the red wine varieties Spätburgunder, Dornfelder, Cabernet Dorsa and Portugieser. The vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of natural viticulture. In years with suitable weather conditions, noble sweet dessert wines such as Trockenbeerenauslesen and ice wines are also produced. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, noble brandies (marc, yeast, grape, fruit) and liqueurs are also produced.
