The winery is located in the municipality of Pünderich (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine region. The head office is located in a half-timbered house built in 1663 directly on the banks of the Moselle, while the cellar built in the 1970s is located further up the mountain. Since 1986 the company has been run by Rita and Clemens Busch. The vineyards cover 17 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Marienburg (in the plots Fahrlay, Fahrlay Terraces, Falkenlay, Rock Terrace, Raffes and Rothenpfad) and Nonnengarten (Pünderich). They are 99% planted with Riesling and a small amount ofPinot Noir. Biodynamic viticulture is implemented according to the guidelines of respect-BIODYN. Special attention is paid to the strengthening of the plants, which is mainly achieved by planting greenery between the rows of vines, as well as in fertilization by using only natural nitrogen, clay minerals and plant extracts.
The grapes are only lightly crushed and pressed at low pressure. The best parts ferment afterwards in the old Fuder barrel, others partly in stainless steel. Spontaneous fermentation is mainly practised with yeasts from the vineyard, only for the production of Trockenbeerenauslese pure yeast is used as an exception. The wines are stored for a long time on the full yeast and are aged for up to 24 months. Among the premium wines are the local wine "Riesling vom roten Schiefer" and the "" "Marienburg FAHRLAY". We also produce noble brandies(yeast, marc, fruit) matured in oak barrels, as well as bottle-fermented sparkling wines. About 100.000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery has been a member of the VDP since 2007, as well as the associations La Renaissance des Appellations and respect-BIODYN.
