The winery is located in the municipality of Walsheim in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate
. The estate, initially run by Karl Pfaffmann as a mixed agricultural enterprise, was completely converted to viticulture in 1964. Today, the winery is managed by Helmut Pfaffmann. After studying viticulture and cellar management in Geisenheim, son Markus has been responsible for the cellar since 1998. The vineyards comprise 40 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Bischofskreuz and Herrenberg (Nußdorf), Hohenrain (Knöringen), and Silberberg (Walsheim). Two thirds of the vineyards are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling, Pinot Gris, Kerner, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Scheurebe, Huxelrebe and Ortega, and one third with the red wine varieties Dornfelder, Pinot Noir, Portugieser, Dunkelfelder, Merlot and St. Laurent. The aim is to achieve high grape quality through appropriate yield-reducing measures with appropriate pruning, foliage work and green pruning. The entire harvest is fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. Maturation also takes place in tanks and partly in barriques. The wines are mostly matured dry. In suitable years also noble sweet predicates as well as ice wine are pressed. Furthermore, bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
