The winery is located in the municipality of Johannisberg (part of Geisenheim) in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. The traditional family has been growing grapes here since 1670. Today, Michael Trenz is the 11th generation to run the winery. A wine tavern with Rheingau cuisine and a Mediterranean courtyard is attached. The vineyards cover 17 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyards Hölle and Vogelsang (Johannisberg), Dachsberg, Gutenberg and Hasensprung (Winkel), Magdalenenkreuz (Rüdesheim), and Kläuserweg (Geisenheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (85%) and Pinot Blanc (12%) and the red wine variety Pinot Noir (3%). The late and selectively harvested grapes are vinified into fresh, fruity, effervescent wines after gentle pressing and slow, controlled cold fermentation. The Pinot Noir is matured 100% in large wooden barrels with long storage. A vine lease for a Riesling or Spätburgunder vine is also offered. Around 180,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
