The winery is located in the municipality of Herxheim am Berg (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate
. The traditional family has been growing wine here since 1697. Today the business is run by Edwin and Martina Bohnenstiel. A holiday apartment is also attached. There are annual events such as vintage presentation, wine hike in the kingdom of heaven and the autumn festival. The vineyards cover 12 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Himmelreich
, Honigsack and Kirchenstück (Herxheim) with lime marl and loamy sand soils. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau and Gelber Muskateller, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Dornfelder, Merlot, St. Laurent, Cabernet Sauvignon, Acolon and Blauer Portugieser. The cultivation is close to nature and environmentally friendly
The red wines are vinified in the traditional way. After the classic mash fermentation
with the aim of achieving a high colour intensity, they mature partly in barrique. The must of the white wines is consistently preclarified in the must stage. The fermentation takes place for three weeks at a cool temperature below 18 °Celsius with the aim of producing fruity and pure wines. The premium wines are made from reduced yield grapes selected by hand. These include Riesling Spätlese trocken - Im Wermuth, Weißburgunder trocken - Mahlstein and Spätburgunder trocken - Felsenberg, which matures on the yeast in wooden barrels for at least 12 months. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, noble brandies (marc, grape), vinegar and wine jelly
are also produced. About 80,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
