The winery is located in the municipality of Iphofen (Steigerwald area) in the German wine growing region of Franconia. It was founded in 1839 by Johann Balthasar Ruck. After completing his viticulture studies in Geisenheim, his son Johannes took over responsibility for the cellar in 2000 and has been running the business since 2009. Father Johann takes care of the vineyards. These include 13 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Julius-Echter-Berg, Kalb and Kronsberg (Iphofen), as well as chef and Schwanleite (Rödelsee). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner (39%), Riesling (15%) Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus, Pinot Gris, Scheurebe, Pinot Blanc, Rieslaner and Traminer, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir and Domina. Traditional, environmentally friendly methods are used in the vineyard and cellar. The specially selected planting material is cultivated in high density up to 7,000 vines per hectare. Through appropriate measures, a quality-enhancing reduction with an average of 55 hl/ha is achieved

The aim is to produce wines that are typical of their location and variety and are primarily dry. The fermentation often takes place spontaneously with the vineyard's own yeasts. Depending on the type of wine, they are aged in steel tanks or in large wooden barrels. The white wines are stored on the for a long time. Among the premium wines are the great Sylvaner and Riesling from the Julius-Echter-Berg, the Sylvaner "Myophorium" as well as "Estheria" from Scheurebe. Also produced are a measuring wine in a Bocksbeutel, bottle-fermented sparkling wine and noble brandies (marc, herbs, wine). In years with suitable weather conditions, Trockenbeerenauslese and Eiswein are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter) and one of the Franconian TRIAS wineries.
