The winery is located in the municipality of Essenheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The winery, which is rich in tradition, can look back on more than 300 years of winegrowing tradition, as ancestors of the Wagner family acquired vineyards here as early as 1692. In the 19th century, Jean Wagner (1875-1965) earned great merit as a great admirer of French culture and viticulture, bringing back new ideas for making red wine from his trips to France. Since 2002, the estate has been managed by the Wagner brothers. Ulrich Wagner, who gained experience in Baden and South Africa after his studies in Geisenheim, is responsible for the cellar. Dr. Andreas Wagner has returned to the estate after studying politics and history and is responsible for selling the wines. He is also active as a crime writer and has written five works from the winemaking milieu so far.
