The winery is located in the municipality of Guntersblum (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The traditional company was founded in 1702 by Johann Heinrich Janß and his wife Anna. Since 2003 it has been managed by Wolfgang and Petra Janß. The Gutsschänke "Reblausstube" is attached. The vineyards cover 15.5 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Pettenthal (Nierstein), as well as Eiserne Hand, Himmelthal, Kreuzkapelle, St. Julianenbrunnen and Steinberg (Guntersblum). They are planted to 70% with the white wine varieties Riesling, Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Grüner Veltliner and Würzer, and 30% with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Portugieser, St. Laurent and Schwarzriesling. The cultivation is carried out according to the latest ecological findings with natural fertilization. In order to sustainably promote soil life, certain types of grain and oil radish are sown and later ploughed under again. The physiologically ripe, healthy grapes are harvested by hand at a very late stage. The fermentation takes place spontaneously with yeasts from the vineyard. The wines are vinified in a gentle manner typical of the variety and are bottled only after a long period of maturation.
