The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The winery is located in the municipality of Martinsthal in the German Rheingau wine region. It looks back on several hundred years of history and tradition. The cellars still in use today date back to the 17th century. In 1917 Jacob Diefenhardt acquired the property from Baron von Reichenau. Since that time, the winery has been family-owned; today it is managed by the Seyffardt family. After his studies in Geisenheim, one year in Stellenbosch (South Africa) as cellar master and afterwards six months with Bodega Etchart in Cafayate (Argentina) as consultant, Peter Seyffardt joined his parents' business in 1981. Since 1998 he has been managing the business. In the meantime, his daughter Julia has joined the business and is now contributing her ideas. The predominantly steep vineyards comprise almost 17 hectares of vineyards in the areas of Langenberg, Rödchen and Wildsau (Martinsthal), as well as Rothenberg (Rauenthal). They are exclusively planted with the two varieties Riesling (75%) and Spätburgunder (25%)

In the vineyard, maintaining and improving soil fertility with the aim of achieving an ecological balance between the soil and the vine is a top priority. Quality criteria are optimisation of the leaf-fruit ratio, organic fertilisation, low yields, thinning of the grapes, timely defoliation of the grape zone, negative selections and selective manual harvesting. In the cellar, these are whole grape pressing, pre-clarification, controlled fermentation, long yeast storage, and vinification according to grape variety and wine type. The Pinot Noir red wines are aged exclusively in barrique barrels. The quality pyramid comprises the three VDP classification levels. The winery is a long-standing member of the VDP.
