The winery is located in the municipality of Forst (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine growing region of the Palatinate. It was founded in 1935 from a cooperage with viticulture, which had already existed since 1767. In 1971 it was taken over by Kurt and Elisabeth Müller. After his training as a winemaker in a Palatinate winery and at Schloss Vollrads in the Rheingau, his oenology studies in Geisenheim and practical experience at the Glaetzer Winery in the Australian Barossa Valley, their son Stephan Müller has been working in the business since 2000. The cellar master is Jürgen Meißner. The vineyards comprise 17 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Jesuit garden, church property, Musenhang, Pechstein, Stift and Ungeheuer (forest).

The wines are cool fermented in oak barrels, some red wines and Pinot Blanc are aged in barriques. A speciality are noble sweet wines. About 145,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
