The winery is located in the municipality of Escherndorf (Maindreieck area) in the German wine-growing region of Franconia. The Schäffer family, rich in tradition, can be traced back to 1524. From 1900 onwards, Jakob and Ottmar Schäffer ran the Schäffer Bros. winery. In 1988, it was taken over by Egon Schäffer, who is now assisted by his son Peter. A holiday flat is attached. The vineyards cover 3.5 hectares in the Sonnenberg (Untereisenheim), Fürstenberg and Lump (Escherndorf) vineyards. Around 70% of these are steep slopes. The white wine varieties Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Riesling and Bacchus are planted, as well as the red wine variety Schwarzriesling, which, however, is vinified as Rosé.

The winery is committed to the non-invasive principle that "quality grows in the vineyard". Only ripe and healthy grapes are processed through selective hand-picking. 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 fermented through with long contact on the fine lees and mature in the cellar before being marketed. The winery's own designation "Schäffer trocken" means a residual sugar 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
