The winery is located in the municipality of Rhodt unter Rietburg (area Südliche Weinstrasse) in the German wine region of the Palatinate. The traditional chestnut farm has been in family ownership since 1780. Today the estate is run by Karl-Heinz and son Knut Fader, supported by their wives Hedwig and Heike. The vineyards comprise 18 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Münzberg (Godramstein), as well as Klosterpfad, Rosengarten and Schlossberg (Rhodt). Grapes from a further three hectares are purchased from contract winegrowers. The white wine varieties Riesling (mainly in Schlossberg), Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Auxerrois, Muscatel and Gewürztraminer, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Blauer Portugieser, Dornfelder, St. Laurent and Merlot are cultivated and processed

The cultivation is carried out in a near-natural, environmentally friendly manner. This includes organic fertilisation, flowering greenery and intensive leaf care with the aim of maintaining intact soils. During harvesting, emphasis is placed on physiologically ripe, healthy grapes. It is processed gently with good must pre-clarification, controlled fermentation and long storage on the . The white estate wines are matured fresh and fruity in steel tanks, the premium wines in 600 litre wooden barrels or in barriques. The red wines mature for 6 to 18 months after maceration in 600-litre wooden barrels or, in the case of the premium wines, in barriques. The premium wines are Riesling Spätlese trocken Buntsandstein Alte Reben, Grauer Burgunder Spätlese trocken Alte Reben and Cabernet Sauvignon Klosterpfad.
