The winery is located in the municipality of Oberrotweil (Kaiserstuhl area) in the German wine-growing region of Baden. The traditional family business has been active in viticulture here since the middle of the 18th century. Today's winery was founded in 1950 by Benno Salwey as what was then still a typical mixed agricultural business, including livestock farming. Wolf Salwey converted the former agricultural business completely to wine and distillates. His son Konrad Salwey trained as a winemaker at the Wirsching and Müller-Catoir wineries as well as in Alsace and Burgundy. Afterwards, he studied oenology in Geisenheim. From 2004 onwards, he worked at his parents' winery and, after the death of his father, he has been the third generation to run the business alone since 2011.
