The winery is located in the municipality of Bretzfeld-Dimbach (Württembergisch Unterland area) in the German wine-growing region of Württemberg
. A wine tavern is attached. The winery has been run by Markus Busch since 2000, since when the wines have been vinified and marketed on their own. The vineyards cover 8 hectares of vines in the Himmelreich (Bretzfeld) and Wildenberg (Ellhofen) single vineyard sites on Keuper and gypsum Keuper soils. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Kerner and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as with the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Cabernet Dorsa, Regent, Trollinger (Schiava
), Schwarzriesling (Pinot Meunier), St. Laurent, Muskat-Trollinger (Muscat d'Hamburg), Lemberger and Samtrot
The vineyards are cultivated in accordance with the guidelines of organic viticulture
(certified by the EU Commission). Particular emphasis is placed on quality-enhancing yield reduction; among other things, the levels of the quality pyramid are derived from the yield
. The fully ripe and healthy grapes, obtained through selective harvesting, are processed gently, and transport is carried out exclusively by means of gravity. With the exception of some white wines refined in barriques, the white wines are stored in steel tanks until bottling. Slow fermentation is used to enhance the aromatics. The red wines mature in barrique in the sandstone vaulted cellar built in 1836.
The quality pyramid consists of four levels; the classification is also determined by the harvest quantity per vine (the smaller the yield, the more stars). These are Premium Barrique **** and Premium noble sweet **** (special sites with old vines, strongly reduced), Premium *** (special sites, strongly reduced, also organic wines
), Selected ** (selected sites, slightly reduced) and Classic (classics of Hohenlohe wine culture). Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, noble brandies and grape juice are also produced. In addition, commented wine experience tours and wine tastings are also offered, always accompanied by Swabian snack specialities
