The winery is located in the municipality of Laumersheim in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. It was founded in 1874 by the Knipser family, who came from South Tyrol. In addition to viticulture, fruit and arable farming were also practised and the wines were sold in barrels. As one of the first wineries in the region, bottling and direct marketing began as early as 1948. In the early 1970s, they switched completely to viticulture. Volker and Werner Knipser began barrique vinification in the mid-1980s and are considered absolute specialists today. Werner Knipser's son Stephan has been co-owner since 2005. Since the 2003 vintage, all wines have been vinified in the new state-of-the-art winery building on the outskirts of Laumersheim. In 2014, "Knipser's Halbstück", a restaurant with wine sales, was opened in Bissersheim. The vineyards cover 90 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Kapellenberg, Kirschgarten and Steinbuckel (Laumersheim), Mandelpfad (Dirmstein), as well as Burgweg, Im großen Garten and Osterberg (Großkarlbach).
