The winery is located in the municipality of Kröv (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. It is one of the oldest wineries on the Moselle. In 862, King Lothar II. (835-869) donated the estate to the Benedictine monastery of Stavelot, which owned it until the Napoleonic secularisation. In 1805, the estate was acquired by the French state through Peter Schneiders, an ancestor of the current owners. Today, the estate is run by Jan Matthias Klein. The vineyards cover nine hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Letterlay, Paradies and Steffensberg (Kröv), Hofberger (Neumagen-Dhron), and Treppchen (Piesport). They are 75% planted with Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Sauvignon Blanc,Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder and Regent. Organic viticulture is practised according to the rules of ECOVIN.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
