The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The winery is located in the community of Bad Dürkheim (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region Palatinate. The classicistic manor house was built in 1785 and is under monumental protection. Since then the estate has always been owned by the family and is now managed by Johann Fitz in the ninth generation. The winery regularly organises classical concerts, art exhibitions and wine festivals. The vineyards cover 21 hectares in the individual locations Abtsfronhof, Fuchsmantel, Hochbenn, Michelsberg, Rittergarten and Spielberg (Bad Dürkheim), as well as Herrenberg (Ungstein). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (50%), Gewürztraminer,Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay andPinot Gris, as well as the red wine varieties Blauer Portugieser,Pinot Noir, Dornfelder and Cabernet Dorsa.

About 70% of the wines are dry, 15% semi-dry and 15% sweet or . After gentle pressing and slow fermentation, the wines mature in stainless steel or wooden barrels, depending on their character. The best red wines mature for 18 to 24 months in French from Allier. The best dry white wines are marketed as Grosses Gewächs. Noble sweet tips are provided with a label from 1860. This won first prize in a competition organised by the DLG. The house also houses the oldest sparkling wine cellar in Rhineland-Palatinate. It was founded in 1837 by an ancestor. The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter) and the Forum Pfalz.
