The winery is located in the municipality of Hohen-Sülzen (Wonnegau area) near the city of Worms in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. Hans-Oliver Spanier took over his parents' business in 1991 and four years later 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 continue to be run or produced separately. Hans-Oliver Spanier was uncompromisingly committed to the principle of origin from the very beginning: "You can only talk about terroirif you respect and preserve the soil and its micro-organisms. Otherwise there is no terroir."

They areplanted with the white wine varieties Riesling (main variety with about 70% of the total area), Pinot Blanc and Silvaner , as well as the red wine variety Pinot Noir.Environmentally friendly, ecological cultivationhas beenpractisedsince 1991.In 2005, the conversion to biodynamic viticulture took place. Among other things, this includes the renunciation of synthetic fertilisers and instead the application of preparations and teas in order to strengthen the vines.Finally, the winery wasaccepted into the winegrowers' association La Renaissance des Appellations,foundedby French cult winemakerNicolas JolyJoly Nicolas, in 2011,and then into the Académie International du vin (AIV) in 2019.
