The winery is located in the community of Dirmstein (area Mittelhaart/German Wine Route) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate
. The traditional business has been in family ownership since 1803. The farm is a former Jesuit monastery with several listed buildings. The Quadt'sche Schloss, which is inhabited by Uli Schneider and his family, also belongs to the estate. He manages the agricultural part of the farm. The wine and sparkling wine estate in its present form was founded in 1986 by Andrea and Klaus Schneider. They are supported by their son Moritz, who, after training with top winemakers from the Palatinate, is studying viticulture at the Geisenheim
University of Applied Sciences. The vineyards comprise 20 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Herrgottsacker, Jesuitenhofgarten (in sole ownership) and Mandelpfad
(Dirmstein), as well as Steinbuckel
(Laumersheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Auxerrois, Silvaner and Gewürztraminer, and the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Dornfelder, Portugieser and Black Riesling. Great importance is attached to environmentally friendly, sustainable cultivation
and careful vinification. The white wines are aged in steel tanks, the red wines mature in large wooden barrels or in barriques. We also produce bottle-fermented sparkling wines and fine spirits (wine, marc).
