The winery is located in the community of Schweigen (area Südliche Weinstraße) in the German wine region of Pfalz. In 1973, the family began to market the wines themselves. Today the business is run by Friedrich Becker and Friedrich Wilhelm Becker. Gerard Paul is responsible as administrator. The vineyards comprise 25 hectares of vines in the Schweigener Sonnenberg vineyard in the Kammerberg, Sankt Paul and Wormberg sub-areas. About 60% is located above the nearby border in the French Alsace. They are planted with the red wine varietiesPinot Noir, Blauer Portugieser, PinotMeunier and Merlot as well as the white wine varieties Riesling,Pinot Blanc, PinotGris, Chardonnay, Silvaner, Auxerrois and Gewürztraminer.
In the interest of environmentally friendly pest control in the vineyard, beneficial insects such as lacewings, predatory mites and ladybirds are used. The yield is extremely reduced by appropriate pruning. The wines are matured separately by variety and location in stainless steel or in oak barrels. The red wines are fermented in open maceration. Particularly rich white and red wines are aged in French barriques. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and noble brandies are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP (Association of German Prädikat Wineries), as well as the associations Generation Riesling and "5 Winzer 5 Freunde".
