The winery is located in the community of Oestrich-Winkel in the German Rheingau wine region. It was founded in 1936. Today, the business is managed in the third family generation by Christoph (viticultural engineer) and Thomas Eser (viticultural technician). The vineyards comprise 15 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Doosberg and Lenchen (Oestrich), Rothenberg (Rauenthal) and St. Nikolaus (Mittelheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, as well asPinot Noir. The oldest vines are over 70 years old. They are cultivated in an environmentally friendly, sustainable way to preserve biodiversity (species diversity). This includes greening, as well as restrictive use of plant protection products and fertilizers.
Only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are processed by selective hand harvesting. The fermentation takes place spontaneously with yeasts from the vineyard. Depending on the type of wine, the wines are aged in stainless steel tanks, in large wooden barrels(piece and half pieces) or in barriques. Among the premium wines are Editus Riesling Oestricher Doosberg and the white wine cuvée White Blend, which are also bottled in magnum bottles, as well as the red wine Spätburgunder Uhrwerk Alte Reben, which is aged for 24 months in barrique. We also produce bottle-fermented Winzersekt. Around 100,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
