The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The winery is located in the community of Bad Dürkheim (area Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße) in the German wine-growing region Palatinate. It was founded in 1843 by the physician Dr. Christian Schaefer, who acquired the classicistic manor house, now a cultural monument, in 1843. The company was given its present name by his son Karl Schaefer, a pioneer in bottling. Today, the estate is run by Dr. Job von Nell and Marianne von Nell, the sixth generation of the family, who are supported by a young team. The vineyards cover around 17 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Fuchsmantel, Michelsberg and Spielberg (Bad Dürkheim), Fuchsmantel and Gerümpel (Wachenheim), Pechstein (Forst), as well as Herrenberg and Weilberg (Ungstein).

The old terraced grounds with many dry stone walls have been preserved in their original form and offer a retreat for rare animals and plants. They are stocked with the white wine varieties Riesling (85%), Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Scheurebe, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Rieslaner and Muscatel, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dornfelder and Merlot. The winery is certified according to the guidelines of organic viticulture. The cultivation is largely done by hand with little use of machinery. The wines are carefully vinified according to the winery's definition of "lean, puristic, mineral and dry from tradition". Since the 2012 vintage, the wines have been produced according to the four-stage VDP classification. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and fine spirits (marc) are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP (Association of German Prädikat Wineries).
