The winery is located in the municipality of Bad Dürkheim-Pfeffingen between Bad Dürkheim and Ungstein in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The Schnell family had been growing grapes in the Palatinate since the middle of the 17th century. In 1931, the Pfeffingen estate was acquired by Valentin Schnell. His son-in-law Karl Fuhrmann took over the business in 1952 and subsequently converted the formerly mixed agricultural business completely to viticulture. After training as a winemaker, studying viticulture in Geisenheim and gaining practical experience abroad (California, Bordeaux, Australia), Jan Eymael took over the management of the estate in 2002. There are three generations working in the business. According to the company motto "top quality with sustainability", there is a balanced interplay between economy, ecology and social responsibility.
