The winery is located in the community of Hohen-Sülzen (Wonnegau area) near the city of Worms in the German Rheinhessen wine growing region. Hans-Oliver Spanier took over his parents' business in 1993, and four years later the estate merged with the neighbouring Battenfeld Winery. In 2006 he married Carolin Gillot from the Kühling-Gillot winery (Bodenheim, in the Nierstein area), but the two brands are still operated and produced separately. The vineyards comprise a total of 28 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Kirchenstück (Hohen-Sülzen), Frauenberg (Flörsheim), and Schwarzer Herrgott (Zell). They are mainly planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (main variety with about 50% of the total area),Pinot Blanc and Silvaner, as well as the red wine varietyPinot Noir and some others.
Organic viticulture has been practised consistently since 1993 and Hans Oliver Spanier has been a member of the Federal ECOVIN Association since 1996. Since 2005 he has been working according to biodynamic guidelines and in 2011 he was accepted into the biodynamic winegrowers' association La Renaissance des Appellations, founded by the French cult winemaker Nicolas Joly. The declared aim is to produce Rieslings of the absolute top class. The wines, which are fermented exclusively spontaneously with the vineyard's own yeasts, are almost without exception aged dry in three lines. The estate wines are fermented in steel tanks and vinified in a fruity manner. The local wines and great wines are mostly matured in old wooden barrels with emphasis on the aromas of herbs, spice, saltiness and flint. Barrique is also no longer used for the red wines. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
