The traditional winery is located in the municipality of Neustadt-Gimmeldingen (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region of Pfalz. 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 through marriage to 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, the winery has been run by Steffen Christmann, already the seventh generation of the family.

The vineyards cover 21 hectares of vineyards in the single vineyard sites 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 them are planted with Riesling, as well as Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Muscat. With the 2004 vintage, after having practised organic viticulture for a long time, they switched completely to biodynamic viticulture. As far as possible, the work is oriented to 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 subordinate to the goal of preserving the fruit flavour of the grapes in the purest possible form and producing wines that are specific to the terroir. This includes gentle long pressing at low pressure, pre-clarification through natural settling and a slow but not too cool fermentation, the renunciation of fining and treatment of the young wines and a single filtration. For the red wine, a classic mash fermentation, a long barrique storage with biological acid reduction and bottling without a sharp filtration are practised. The winery is a member of the VDP, as well as the Respect and Renaissance de Appellation associations.
