The winery is located in the municipality of Winningen (area of Burg Cochem, or Terrassenmosel) in the German Moselle wine growing region. It was founded in 1980 by Dipl. Ing. agr. Reinhard Löwenstein and his wife Cornelia Heymann-Löwenstein and has been developed into an outstanding quality business. Löwenstein is one of Germany's top winegrowers and is often referred to as the "Rebel of the Moselle" because he has dedicated himself to an extreme and uncompromising quality philosophy for many years. He coined the term Terrassenmosel, which describes the area of the lower Moselle valley, which is characterised by extremely steep, terraced vineyards and sandy slates. The vineyards comprise 14 hectares of vines in the individual sites Kirchberg and Stolzenberg (Hatzenport), which are classified as Großes Lage by the VDP, and Röttgen and Uhlen in the areas Blaufüßer Lay, Laubach and Roth Lay (Winningen). They are 98% planted with Riesling.Pinot Noir (Pinot Noir), which is produced in cooperation with the Ziereisen winery(Baden), accounts for 2%.
The sustainable management of the vineyards, the cellar and the entire business is carried out according to certified Fair'n Green rules. Reinhard Löwenstein is fully committed to the terroir concept and, according to his own statement, vinifies his wines with the aim of "condensing the creative synthesis of soil, vines, microclimate and the skills of the winemaker into a unique, authentic sensory experience of the wines". The product range is structured according to the VDP classification model. In principle, the wines are fermented spontaneously without the use of pure yeasts. All additives such as bentonite and enzymes are rejected. Among the premium wines of the house are "RÖTTGEN GG" and "UHLEN Roth Lay GG". In years suitable for the weather, Auslese and Trockenbeerenauslese are also pressed. Fine spirits (yeast, marc) and bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter). Reinhard Löwenstein was significantly involved in the development of the Fair'n Green guidelines and is on the board of directors of the group. He was also co-initiator of "Twin-Wineries", a partnership between Israeli and German wineries.
