The winery is located in the community of Hattenheim (part of Eltville) in the German Rheingau wine region. In 1870, Balthasar Ress founded a commercial enterprise with an inn and his own winery. The business has grown considerably since then. In 1993 the new cellar building "Rheinallee 50" was acquired, where the vinotheque (picture) is also located. The old manor house at "Rheinallee 7" offers with its recently renovated fireplace room, romantic garden and modern lounge an impressive setting for events of all kinds. Today, the traditional business is managed in the fifth generation by Christian Ress. The vineyards cover 50 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Berg Roseneck, Berg Rottland and Berg Schlossberg (Rüdesheim), Engelmannsberg, Nussbrunnen and Schützenhaus (Hattenheim), as well as Höllenberg (Assmannshausen). They are mainly planted with Riesling andPinot Noir. After a three-year conversion phase, the vineyard has been cultivated according to certified rules of organic viticulture since the 2019 vintage.

Ress Balthasar - Vinothek

The wines are marketed in four lines according to the VDP classification model. Even Balthasar Ress used to offer specially selected wines as "Von Unserm". The winery still uses this brand today for special wines, bottle-fermented sparkling wines and spirits of the house that meet the highest quality standards. In the treasure chamber, wines dating back to the 1920 vintage are stored. Since June 2009, the winery has owned a 3,000 m² vineyard in the municipality of Keitum on the island of Sylt. It is the most northern vineyard in Germany. A total of 1,600 Solaris vines were planted there. As a special feature, vine sponsorships can be concluded for a limited number of vines. Since the 2013 vintage, the winery and its vine tenants have been producing the Schleswig-Holstein "Söl'ring-Wein" from Sylt every year. The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).

A special feature of the winery are bottle labels designed by various artists. Catherine and Stefan Ress commissioned their first artist's label (see some examples there) from the German painter Heinz te Laake (1925-2001) in 1978. In doing so they released the complete bottle for design. The artists were completely free to choose the label paper, the printing process as well as the shape and colour of the bottle capsule. The labels are specially designed for the bottle belly and only top wines are distinguished by an artist's label.
