The winery is located in the municipality of Hattenheim (part of Eltville) in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was founded in 1953 by Johann Josef Lang. The winery was acquired in 2013 by the Swiss Urban Kaufmann (former owner of an Appenzeller cheese dairy) and Eva Raps (former GF of the VDP). Kaufmann is the oenologist in charge and is assisted by Eckart Waitz. Eva Raps is responsible for marketing and sales. The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyard sites Hassel and Wisselbrunnen (Hattenheim), which are classified as Grosse Lage (VDP), as well as in the Erste Lage (VDP) Schützenhaus (Hattenheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (80%), Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Silvaner, as well as Pinot Noir. In 2009, the entire conversion to organic viticulture took place, so that all wines are certified according to organic guidelines as of the 2012 vintage.

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.
