The winery is located in the municipality of Nierstein (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The traditional family has been cultivating wine on the Rhine for over 650 years. Jakob Schlamp founded the winery in Nierstein in 1850, and his son Heinrich acquired the "General von Zastrow" estate in 1874, the location of today's winery. Since 2008, the winery has been run by Kai and Caroline Schätzel. The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vines in the single vineyards Heiligenbaum, Hipping, Ölberg and Pettenthal on the Rote Hang (Nierstein). They are planted with the varieties Riesling (80%), Silvaner with its own Schätzel clone and Pinot Noir. The vineyards are cultivated according to the certified rules of organic viticulture. Appropriate care in the vineyard results in small, loose-berried, thick-skinned and thus very aromatic grapes with low, quality-enhancing yields.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
