The winery is located in the municipality of Freinsheim (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. The foundation stone for today's winery was laid by the parents with their mixed agricultural business with fruit and wine growing until well into the 1990s. Steffen Rings joined the business with the 2001 vintage and completed the conversion to exclusively viticulture. After his apprenticeship at the Wagner-Stempel winery in Rheinhessen, Andreas Rings also returned and has been running the winery together with his brother since 2008. The vineyards were expanded with the purchase of plots from the best sites. In 2010, a south-facing parcel in the Berntal nature reserve was recultivated on special terroir with limestone rocks and the old dry stone walls were rebuilt. The vineyards now cover 40 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Saumagen and Steinacker (Kallstadt), Schwarzes Kreuz (Freinsheim), Weilberg (Ungstein) and Felsenberg (Leistadt). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Blauer Portugieser, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, St. Laur ent and Syrah
