The winery is located in the municipality of Bürgstadt (Mainviereck area) in the German growing region of Franconia. The family has been involved in viticulture since at least 1855, and today the winery is run by Daniela and Christoph Walter. The vineyards cover 3.5 hectares of vines in the single vineyards Centgrafenberg and Hundsrück (Bürgstadt). The vineyards are 75% planted with the red wine varieties Spätburgunder (50%), Frühburgunder, Domina and Regent, as well as the white wine varieties Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus and Riesling. The vineyards are cultivated in a natural way with permanent cover crop, spreading of manure and compost, and no insecticides or mineral nitrogen fertilisers. Quality-enhancing measures include a high number of vines per hectare and extensive foliage work with the goal of low yields
