The origins can be traced back to the Puricelli family, who, among other things, cultivated vines here as early as the mid-15th century. In 1911, Friedrich Christian Reichsgraf von Plettenberg (1882-1972) married Elisabeth Puricelli. From 1912 onwards, he developed his wife's winery into a model business and is considered one of the most important winegrowing pioneers on the Nahe. Until 1933 he was chairman of the Prussian Winegrowers' Association, and after 1945 he was co-founder of the Nahe and Glan Farmers' and Winegrowers' Association and its chairman from 1947 to 1953. During this time he was also a member of the board of the DWV (German Winegrowers' Association). The vineyards cover 35 hectares of vines in the single vineyards Felsenköpfchen, Pastorei and Vogelsang (Bretzenheim), Brückes, Forst, Hinkelstein, Hofgarten, Kahlenberg, Kapellenpfad, Mollenbrunnen, Mönchberg, Narrenkappe, Osterhöll and St. Martin (Bad Kreuznach), Götzenfels (Norheim), Berg and Rosenheck (Winzenheim), as well as Felsenberg and Kupferberg (Schloßböckelheim). Two-thirds of them are planted with Riesling, the rest with Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Müller-Thurgau, Blauer Portugieser and Kerner. The farm also does direct sales for wines, sparkling wines, juices and spirits.
