The winery is located in the community of Bruchsal (Kraichgau area) in the German Baden wine region. It was founded in 1983 by Ulrich and Marietta Klumpp with a vineyard area of 0.5 hectares. Ulrich Klumpp was trained as a winemaker in evening courses. The two sons Markus and Andreas completed the study of viticulture and oenology in Geisenheim. This was followed by apprenticeships in top German wineries and internships abroad in Austria, California, South Africa and France. Since 2004 Markus Klumpp has been responsible for the development of the wines, from 2010 Andreas took over the management of vineyard care & office management.
The vineyards comprise 28 hectares of vineyard area with over 100 individual plots in the Klosterberg individual vineyards, Rothenberg and Weiherberg in Monopol (Bruchsal), Kirchberg (Unteröwisheim), as well as Himmelreich (Zeutern), which were included in the vineyard register on the initiative of the winery. They are associated with the red wine varietiesPinot Noir, St. Laurent, Lemberger (Blaufränkisch) and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as the white wine varieties Riesling,Pinot Gris, PinotBlanc, Chardonnay and Auxerrois.
After first attempts starting in 1985, in 1996 the company completely converted to organic (ecological) viticulture according to the certified guidelines of ECOVIN. This includes fertilization on a purely organic basis with compost, straw and ground primary rock. With various quality-enhancing measures such as intensive leaf care, greatly reduced yields, gentle processing in the cellar and long maturation periods, the wines are produced in typical locations and varieties. In the "Edition" line, the white wines mature in steel tanks and the red wines in barriques for 6 to 12 months. In the "Premium" line, the white wines are matured for 6 to 12 months and the red wines for 10 to 18 months from old vines from selected sites. These include Rothenberg Pinot Gris, Kirchberg Chardonnay and Weiherberg Pinot Noir. Around 160,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
