The winery is located in the municipality of Wiltingen in the German Moselle wine-growing region and is one of the oldest businesses on the Saar. It dates back to a Roman villa complex, fragments of which are still visible on the grounds today. In 1743, a monastic winery of the Luxembourg Jesuit College was built on the foundations. As a result of the French Revolution, the estate was secularised and eventually became the property of Gustav van Volxem, a brewer who had immigrated from Brussels. It was subsequently run by the Van Volxem family for four generations. In 1993, Peter Jordan took over the business and ran it under Jordan & Jordan. At the end of 1999, the estate was bought by Roman Niewodniczanski (scion of the Bitburger dynasty) and revived under the old name. He had previously studied economic geography and business administration. Large investments were made in vineyards with additional plots, buildings and cellars.
Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.Thomas Götz
