The winery is located in the community of Bodenheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine region Rheinhessen. In the classic traditional business, the family has been growing wine for more than 200 years. In its present form it was created in 1970 by marriage of the two wineries Kühling and Gillot. Until 2006, the manor house was completely redesigned in Bauhaus style and now also includes a vinotheque and a lounge. The estate is run by Carolin Spanier-Gillot and her husband H.O. Spaniard, is managed by Battenfeld-Spanier. However, Kühling-Gillot and Battenfeld-Spanier continue to exist as two separate brands.
The vineyards comprise 11 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Burgweg (Bodenheim), Kreuz (Oppenheim), Ölberg and Pettenthal (Nierstein) and Rothenberg (Nackenheim). The main varieties are Riesling with root-true vines in the Rothenberg site and (Pinot Noir). These wines come on the market as VDP-classified "Großes Gewächs". In addition, the white wine varietiesPinot Gris, Chardonnay, Scheurebe and Gewürztraminer, as well as other red wine varieties (all used in a red wine cuvée) are cultivated. Organic viticulture has been practised since 2010.
Special emphasis is placed on preserving the fruit aromas by gentle wine treatment from fermentation to bottling. After a spontaneous fermentation, the wine is aged partly in large wooden barrels and partly in stainless steel. In addition to the Grosse Gewächs, there are the lines of local wines (Nierstein and Oppenheim) and estate wines (the white wines are marketed under the winery's own Qvinterra brand). New to the range is a classically developed mixed set of Riesling and Gewürztraminer. In years with suitable weather conditions, noble sweet wines such as Trockenbeerenauslesen are also pressed. The winery is a member of VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter), Die Güter, Message in a Bottle, Pro Riesling and Vinissima.
