The winery is located in the municipality of Nierstein-Schwabsburg (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The traditional Huff family has been growing grapes here for 300 years. The Huff family, rich in tradition, has been cultivating vines here for 300 years. Today, graduate oenologist Christine Huff and her New Zealand husband Jeremy Bird-Huff are responsible for vinification. Master winemaker Ekkehard Huff works in the vineyard and workshop. Doris Huff looks after the well-being of the customers.

The vineyards cover eight hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Orbel, Paterberg, Pettenthal and Schloss Schwabsburg with the prime piece Rabenturm (Nierstein). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Silvaner, Scheurebe and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir and St. Laurent. The near-natural cultivation with a lot of manual labour is carried out, among other things, with 'complete renunciation of mineral fertilisers and herbicides.

Through selective hand harvesting, only ripe and healthy grapes are processed. The wines are marketed in ascending order of quality in the three lines estate wines, local wines and site wines. The latter come from the best plots, which are exclusively steep slopes from the Rote Hang. In order to preserve the aromas, these are produced with maceration times, spontaneous fermentation and long storage on the full lees. The premium wines include "Riesling Rabenturm" (from 50-year-old vines from the Schloss Schwabsburg site) and "Scheurebe - The Green Bird". Around 45,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
