The winery is located in the municipality of Bad Kreuznach-Bosenheim in the German wine-growing region of Nahe. It was founded in the 1950s by Heinrich and Erna Lorenz as a mixed farm. The grapes were given to a cooperative. In the 1970s, son Werner began marketing bottled wine. The "Bonnheimer Hof" estate tavern is connected.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
