The winery is located on the south-eastern outskirts of Johannisberg in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was acquired in 1957 by the Landgrave of Hesse for the Hessische Hausstiftung (Hessian House Foundation) with a vineyard area of seven hectares at the time. The trademark is the well-known coat of arms of the Princes and Landgraves of Hesse, the red and white striped lion of Heinrich I. Today, the winery is run by Donatus Landgrave of Hesse (managing director of the Hessische Hausstiftung) and its director Dr. Clemens Kiefer. The greatly expanded vineyards now cover 40 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Klaus and Vogelsang (Johannisberg), Dachsberg, Gutenberg, Hasensprung and Jesuitengarten (Winkel), Kläuserweg (Geisenheim), and Sandgrub (Kiedrich).
