The winery is located in the municipality of Bad Kreuznach in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. The Korrell family, originally from Spain, has been growing grapes here for around 250 years. The name "Johanneshof" is derived from the fact that a Johannes Korrell was the first in the family to start growing grapes. The originally mixed agricultural business was converted to viticulture when Wilfried Korrell took over in 1967. Today, the farm is run by Martin and Britta Korrell, the sixth generation of the family. A newly built wine press house was put into operation in 2011.

The vineyards cover 26 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Paradies, Rosenberg and St. Martin (Kreuznach), Kirschheck (Norheim), Klamm (Niederhausen), and In den Felsen and Königsfels (Schloßböckelheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Müller-Thurgau, Gewürztraminer, Silvaner, Muscat and Scheurebe, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir, Portugieser and Dornfelder. Year-round foliage management is of great importance. The grapes, which are reduced by thinning out, are processed after selective manual harvesting.
