The winery is located in the municipality of Meddersheim in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. It has been run by Harald Hexamer Jr. since 1999. The vineyards cover 13 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyards Altenberg and Rheingrafenberg (Meddersheim), Marbach (Sobernheim), and In den Felsen and Königsfels (Schloßböckelheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (60%), Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Müller-Thurgau, Gewürztraminer and Bacchus, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir, Domina and Regent. Quality criteria in the vineyard are pruning of only one arched vine, thinning out, defoliation of the grape zone and selective harvesting of optimally ripe grapes in several passes. The aim is to produce fruity, varietal wines that reflect the soil. The musts for the white wines are fermented with yeast selected on the estate itself and matured exclusively in steel tanks. The red wines mature in traditional wooden barrels and barriques, depending on the desired wine type. In climatically suitable years, ice wines are also vinified. Bottle-fermented vintner's sparkling wines and pomace brandy made from Pinot Noir are also produced.
