The winery is located in the community of Odernheim in the German Nahe wine region. It is located at the foot of the Disibodenberg, on which the picturesque ruins of the former Disibodenberg monastery stand. Its origins date back to the 7th century, when the Irish monk Disibod stuck his walking stick into the earth and, according to legend, it began to sprout as a vine. It is worth mentioning that Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) lived in the monastery between 1106 and 1147 and wrote her most important work "Scivias" here. The monastery mill has existed as the central economic pillar of the monastery for over 1000 years. The monks of the Benedictines and later the Cistercians brought the viticulture around the Disibodenberg to blossom. In the Middle Ages the Klostermühle was part of the monastery as a farm. After secularisation during the Reformation, the mill and viticulture were initially taken over by the sovereigns, the dukes of Pfalz-Zweibrücken. Since the 18th century, the mill and viticulture have been run by the Schmidt family for eight generations. In the 1960s Gerhard and Eugen Schmidt created a Burgundy vineyard with a new building and extended vineyards, including the Montfort site, which is in sole ownership with five hectares.

In 1993, the company passed into new ownership and is now managed in the form of a limited partnership by the managing partners Christian Held and Thomas Zenz (Dipl.-Ing. Weinbau). Since then, significant investments have been made in the winery and the outdoor operation, and the vineyards have been considerably expanded. The vineyards comprise 13.5 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Kloster Disibodenberg (Riesling), Montfort (Burgundy varieties), as well as others. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (3.5 ha), Pinot Gris (3 ha), Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Silvaner, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir (4.5 ha) and Early Pinot Noir. The wine is aged in special small stainless steel tanks (600, 1,200, 2,400 l), wooden barrels (1,200 l) and barriques. All red wines are aged exclusively in wooden barrels. As a rule, the wines are aged dry. In small quantities there are also noble sweet specialities like ice wines. From exclusively own Burgundy base wines, bottle-fermented sparkling wines are produced. Since 2009 the distribution of the wines takes place in the "Boos von Waldeckscher Hof" in Meisenheim. The listed aristocratic court also offers rooms for wine tasting. The "Boos von Waldecksche Hofbrennerei" produces fruit and marc brandies.
