The winery is located in the municipality of Herxheim am Berg (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate. The traditional business was founded in 1655, when Caspar Gabel, who had immigrated from Tyrol, settled down as a cooper. Since his studies of viticulture and oenology in Neustadt an der Weinstrasse and practical experience in Baden, Bordeaux, Burgundy and South Africa, Oliver Gabel has been responsible for cellar technology since 2014. Together with his sister Lisa and his parents Wolfgang and Rianne Gabel, he runs the business. Wine tours are also organized.
The vineyards comprise 21 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Goldberg (Asselheim), Held and Steig (Bissersheim), Steinacker (Kallstadt), as well as Himmelreich and Honigsack (Herxheim). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Weißburgunder(Pinot Blanc), Grauburgunder(Pinot Gris), Sauvignon Blanc and Kerner, and with the red wine varieties Spätburgunder(Pinot Noir), Dornfelder, St. Laurent and Lagrein.
The range is divided into three lines: estate wines, traditional wines (aged in 100-year-old large wooden barrels) and site wines (aged in and large wooden barrels). Some wines are also bottled in magnum bottles. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. About 100,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the Pro Riesling, Vinissima Women & Wine and Generation Riesling wine associations.
