The winery is located in the municipality of Laumersheim in the German wine-growing region of the Palatinate. It was founded in 1874 by the Knipser family from South Tyrol. In addition to viticulture, they also cultivated fruit and arable land and sold the wines in barrels. As one of the first wineries in the region, the bottling and direct marketing of bottled wine began in 1948. At the beginning of the 1970s, a complete changeover to viticulture took place. Volker and Werner Knipser started with barrique maturing in the mid-1980s and are today regarded as absolute specialists. Since 2005 Werner Knipser's son Stephan has been a co-owner. Since vintage 2003, all wines have been matured in the new ultra-modern cellar building on the outskirts of Laumersheim. The vineyards cover 40 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Kapellenberg, Kirschgarten and Steinbuckel (Laumersheim), Mandelpfad (Dirmstein), as well as Burgweg and Osterberg (Großkarlbach)

The red wine varieties Pinot Noir, St. Laurent, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Dornfelder, Syrah, Lemberger and Blauer Arbst are cultivated, as well as the white wine varieties Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, , Auxerrois, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, Sylvaner and Gewürztraminer. The wines are 95% dry, but in suitable years also Trockenbeerenauslesen are pressed. The wines pressed from the first site are marketed as Grosse Gewächs. Of the red wines, "Cuvée X" in Bordeaux style (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, 18 to 20 months in mostly new barriques), "Cuvée XR" (selection of best barrels Cuvée X, only in the best years) and Pinot Noir "Burgweg" are worth mentioning. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines and marc brandies are also produced. The winery is a member of the VDP and founding member of the German Barrique Forum.
One of the best producers of the country
