The winery is located in the community of Durbach (Ortenau area) in the German Baden wine region. The estate has been in family ownership since 1737. In addition to viticulture, three hectares are used to grow fruit for the spirits produced in their own distillery. Half a hectare each is made up of forest and grassland. The owner Heinrich Männle is called "Rotwein-Männle" because of the predominant red wine. The vineyards comprise 5.5 hectares of vineyards in the Durbach single vineyards Kochberg, Ölberg and Plauelrain. They are planted with the red wine varieties Spätburgunder(Pinot Noir) with more than 50%, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and the white wine varieties Scheurebe, Klingelberger (Riesling), Weißburgunder(Pinot Blanc), Grauburgunder(Pinot Gris), Müller-Thurgau and Gewürztraminer. Consistently environmentally friendly viticulture is practised, for example with year-round greening. For fermentation, only weak inoculations with pure yeasts are used to support the natural yeasts. For the noble sweet wines, pure yeasts are usually completely avoided. The red wines mature for the most part in traditional large wooden barrels, a third at least 20 months in in the granite vaulted cellar created in 1993, in which an underground spring also splashes.
