The winery is located in the community of Brauneberg (Bernkastel area) in the German Moselle wine region. The family business has been run by Edith and Stefan Steinmetz since 1999. The vineyards cover 6.5 hectares, 80% of which are in very steep areas in the individual vineyards of Geierslay (Wintrich), Grafschafter Sonnenberg (Veldenz), Herrenberg and Paulinsberg (Kesten), Himmelreich (Graach), Juffer(Brauneberg) and Sonnenlay (Mülheim). They are 70% Riesling, 90% of which is made up of more than 30-year-old, and for the most part even 50-70 year-old, unrooted vines.Pinot Blanc, PinotGris, PinotNoir and Merlot are cultivated on 30% of the area.
The management is based on biological guidelines. For example, insecticides have not been used since the early 1980s. Quality criteria are controlled low harvest quantities, strictly hand-picked selection of the grapes and particularly gentle grape processing without mechanical stress using a pneumatic press and grape mill. A special feature is the old vaulted cellar dating back to 1563, where all wines without exception are fermented spontaneously. The white wines are matured both in traditional fuder barrels and in steel tanks, the red wines are generally matured for 12 to 18 months in French barriques.
