The winery is located in the municipality of Bad Kösen in the German wine-growing region of Saale-Unstrut. Until 1959, the founder Lützkendorf farmed two hectares, before his business was affiliated to an agricultural cooperative. His son Udo then worked in the former state-owned and today's state wine estate Kloster Pforta from 1972 to 1992 as cellar master and director. In 1991, the family got back their vineyards. The founder's grandson Uwe Lützkendorf made extensive investments in the revitalization and construction of estate buildings. The vineyards cover 11 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyard sites Edelacker (Freyburg), Hohe Gräte (Karsdorf) and Pfortenser Köppelberg (Naumburg). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner (one third), Riesling, Pinot Noir, Traminer, Müller-Thurgau and Kerner, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Portugieser and Zweigelt. The vineyards are cultivated in a natural, environmentally friendly way with permanent greenery and no herbicides. The wines are matured in stainless steel or wooden barrels, depending on the type of wine. They are mainly vinified classically dry. The winery is a member of the VDP.
