The winery is located in the community of Escherndorf (area Maindreieck) in the German wine-growing region of Franken. The tradition-rich Schäffer family can be traced here since 1524. From 1900 Jakob and Ottmar Schäffer managed the winery/wainery Gebr. In 1988 it was taken over by Egon Schäffer, who is now supported by his son Peter. A holiday apartment is attached. The vineyards comprise 3.5 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Sonnenberg (Untereisenheim), as well as Fürstenberg and Lump (Escherndorf). About 70% of them are steep slopes. The white wine varieties Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Bacchus, as well as the red wine variety Schwarzriesling, which is, however, developed as rosé, are planted.

The winery is committed to the non-invasive principle "that quality grows in the vineyard". Through selective manual harvesting, only ripe and healthy grapes are processed. The cellar work is carried out in a gentle manner. Practices such as the addition of aromatic yeasts or sweet reserve, as well as enrichment and deacidification are deliberately avoided. The wines are fully fermented with long contact on the fine yeast and mature before being marketed in the cellar. The winery's own designation "Schäffer trocken" means a residual sugar content of less than 2 g/l. Fine brandies and wine vinegar are also produced. Exceptional vintages may be tasted twice a year at rarity tastings. The winery is a member of the VDP and Slow Food.
