The wines of these establishments count every year to the absolute best of its kind and is almost unrivaled in the top - and that regardless of vintage variations. But the simpler plants are almost invariably excellent. Weaknesses, there are virtually no, and mediocre wines are as good as never before.

The traditional winery is located in the community of Neustadt-Gimmeldingen (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine region Palatinate. It was founded in 1845 by the two cousins Johann Martin Häusser and Prof. Dr. Louis Häusser. In the next generation, the viticulture became a real estate business by marrying the daughter of a Gimmeldingen winery owner. Finally the founder's granddaughter Henriette Häusser married Eduard Christmann in 1894. Today the estate bears the name of her son Arnold. Since 1996, Steffen Christmann has been running the business in the seventh generation of the family.

The vineyards cover 21 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Biengarten, Kapellenberg, Mandelgarten and Schlössel (Gimmeldingen), Eselshaut (Mußbach), Idig and Ölberg (Königsbach), Linsenbusch, Nußbien, Reiterpfad and Spieß (Ruppertsberg) as well as Herrgottsacker, Langenmorgen, Leinhöhle, Mäushöhle and Paradiesgarten (Deidesheim). About two thirds of the vineyards are planted with Riesling, as well as Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Muscatel. With the 2004 vintage, after having practiced for a long time, we switched completely to biodynamic viticulture. As far as possible, the work is based on the phases of the moon. Plant protection is carried out by using plant tea and biodynamic preparations with a complete renunciation of herbicides and insecticides. The nitrogen supply is supported by legumes (clover).

The wines are marketed according to the VDP classification model. All winemaking methods are subordinated to the goal of preserving the fruity taste of the grapes in the purest possible form and producing wines that are related to the terroir. This includes gentle long pressing at low pressure, pre-clarification by natural settling and slow but not too cool fermentation, no fining and treatment of the young wines and a one-off filtration. For red wines, a classic maceration on the skins, a long barrique ageing with biological acid reduction and bottling without sharp filtration are practised. The winery is a member of the VDP, as well as of the associations Respekt and Renaissance de Appellation.
