The winery is located in the municipality of Ockenheim between Bingen and Ingelheim in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. It is run by the siblings Armin and Diana Jäger, who are assisted by Diana's son Benedikt Jäger. In addition to viticulture, vine grafting and vine breeding are also carried out. The vineyards cover 12.5 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Hockenmühle, Kreuz, Laberstall and St. Jakobsberg (Ockenheim), as well as in the district of Bingen. They are 60% planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Silvaner, Muller-Thurgau and Gewürztraminer, and 40% with the red wine varieties Blauer Spätburgunder, St. Laurent, Dornfelder, Portugieser, Neronet and Rubinet. These are self-produced and planted at intervals of well under 2 m² to reduce the single vine load. Depending on the grape variety and the style of vinification, the white wines are either whole bunch pressed, crushed with direct pressing or macerated for up to three days. The red wines are fermented on the skins for one to two weeks. Fermentation is temperature-controlled. Around 90,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and noble brandies (yeast, grape, fruit) are also produced
