The winery is located in the town of Iphofen (Steigerwald / Schwanberger Land area) in the German wine growing region of Franconia
. Already in the 18th century our ancestors cultivated vines and grew wines. The traditional family business is managed in the fifth generation by Irmgard and Werner Emmerich. The sixth generation with Silvia, Milan, Heike as well as Martin is in the starting blocks, so to speak. A new winery with guest rooms was opened on the southern edge of Iphofen in 2000. According to the company's motto, the variety of sites with their respective , the typical grape varieties
and the individual character of each vintage
should be reflected in the wines
The vineyards comprise around nine hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Hohenbühl (Seinsheim), as well as Julius-Echter-Berg
(Iphofen). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner (some of which are more than 100-year-old root-true
vines on Hohenbühl, some of which are among the oldest in Franconia), Scheurebe, Riesling, Müller Thurgau, Bacchus and Kerner, as well as the red wine varieties Domina, Merlot and Portugieser. An environmentally friendly, sustainable
viticulture in combination with traditional winemaking is carried out under the motto "Preserving the old and using modern technology sensibly".
Premium wines include Silvaner from ancient (100-year-old) vines, various Rieslings and dry Scheureben. In suitable years also Beerenauslese
wines are pressed. Winzersekt, sparkling wines, grape juice and noble spirits (wine yeast, marc, fruit, plum) are also produced. As a special feature, vines can be leased(vine sponsorship
). The winery is a member of the Franconian Growth Association.
