The winery is located in the municipality of Dernau in the German Ahr
wine region. It was founded in 1957 by Reinhold Riske. Since 1996 it has been managed by his son Bernd Riske and his wife Michaela Riske-Bach. The vineyards cover 2.6 hectares of vineyards in the locations Goldkaul
, Klosterberg, Pfarrwingert
(Bachem), Rosenberg (Marienthal), as well as Schieferlay
(Bad Neuenahr). They are planted with the varieties Spätburgunder (70%), Dornfelder (15%), Frühburgunder (5%), Blauer Portugieser (5%) and Riesling (5%). Through the aging in new and old oak barrels, the wines acquire different flavours. In suitable years an ice wine is also pressed. Grape juices, noble brandies (yeast, wine) and bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
