The winery is located in the community of Mettenheim (Nierstein area) in the German wine growing region of Rheinhessen. It was founded in the 19th century by Phillip Menger, the great-grandfather of the current owner. After his training as a winemaker, Gernot Becker took over the business and bought the former neighboring Wissmann vineyard with its building and customer base. He is supported by his son Amadeus Becker, who completed his apprenticeship with some well-known Rhine-Hessian companies. The vineyards cover more than five hectares in the individual locations Goldberg, Michelsberg and Schlossberg (Mettenheim), as well as Geyersberg (Bechtheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling,Pinot Gris, PinotBlanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Scheurebe and Bacchus, as well as the red wine varietiesPinot Noir, Dornfelder, Blauer Portugieser and Cabernet Dorsa. The white wines are fermented cool. The red wines mature for one year in wooden and after biological acid reduction. Up to 50,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Half are marketed in Belgium and the Netherlands, the other half in Germany.
