The winery in the municipality of Kallstadt in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz
was founded around 1700 by the Ruprecht family. Due to female succession, the names Ruprecht and later Koehler were lost. In 1969, the estate was taken over by Otto Philippi. The current owner Bernd Philippi worked internationally as a wine consultant for many years before taking over the business from his father in 1986. Attached is the hotel "Weincastell". Together with Werner Näkel (owner of the Meyer-Näkel
winery in the Ahr) and Bernhard Breuer (owner of the Georg Breuer
winery in the Rheingau), with whom he had previously worked on several projects, the "Quinta da Carvalhosa" winery was founded in 2000 in Portugal's Douro Valley. The vineyards in the Palatinate cover 12.5 hectares of vineyards in the Kallstadt vineyards Kronenberg, Saumagen
and Steinacker. They are mainly planted with the varieties Riesling and Spätburgunder, as well as Weißburgunder, Grauburgunder, Chardonnay, Dornfelder, Gewürztraminer, Rieslaner, Cabernet Sauvignon, Scheurebe and Kerner.
