The winery is located in the municipality of Oestrich-Winkel in the German wine-growing region of Rheingau. It was founded in 1936. Today, the winery is run by the third generation of the family, Christoph (viticultural engineer) and Thomas Eser (viticultural technician). The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites 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 as Pinot Noir. The oldest vines are over 70 years old. The vineyards are cultivated in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner in order to preserve biodiversity. This includes cover crop, as well as restrictive use of pesticides and fertilisers.
Only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are harvested by hand. Fermentation takes place spontaneously with the vineyard's own yeasts. Depending on the type of wine, the wines are matured in stainless steel tanks, in large wooden bar rels (piece and half piece) or in barriques. The premium wines include Editus Riesling Oestricher Doosberg and the white wine cuvée White Blend, which are also bottled in magnums, as well as the red wine Spätburgunder Uhrwerk Alte Reben, which is aged for 24 months in barrique. Bottle-fermented sparkling wine is also produced. Around 100,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
