The winery is located in the municipality of Ilbesheim (area Südliche Weinstraße) in the German wine region of the Palatinate
. We also rent out holiday flats. The business is run by Willi Erlenwein and son Timo (trained viticulture technician with an apprenticeship at the Dr. Wehrheim
winery and an internship in Burgundy). In 2015 a new wine press house with wine cellar and separate bottling room was put into operation. The vineyards comprise 17 hectares of vines in the Sonnenberg
(Leinsweiler) single vineyard site. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Müller-Thurgau, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Scheurebe, Kerner and Gelber Muskateller, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder St. Laurent, Schwarzriesling, Portugieser and Dornfelder. Depending on the type of wine, the wines are aged in steel tanks, large wooden barrels or barriques. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced, as well as fine brandies made from fruit (from one hectare of orchards), yeast, marc and wine.
