The winery is located in the municipality of Nierstein (Nierstein area) in the German wine growing region of Rheinhessen. The Guntrum family has been growing wine since 1648. In 1923 Louis Jean George Guntrum, the 8th generation, built the present estate house directly on the Rhine. Today, the winery, which is still owned by the family, is managed by Louis Konstantin Guntrum in the 11th generation. He is also the sole shareholder and managing director of Louis Guntrum Weinkellerei GmbH, which distributes wines in over 60 countries worldwide. The cellar master is Rüdiger Steck. The vineyards comprise ten hectares of vineyards in the locations Bergkirche, Hipping, Ölberg, Orbel, Paterberg and Pettenthal (Nierstein), as well as Herrenberg, Kreuz and Sackträger (Oppenheim).
They are planted with the varieties Riesling, Silvaner,Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau, Scheurebe,Pinot Blanc and PinotNoir. We practice close-to-nature, environmentally friendly viticulture according to the specifications of the DLG (German Agricultural Society). The musts come from the press without mechanical stress into the cellar. The white wines ferment temperature-controlled in steel tanks. The red grapes are generally destemmed and fermentation takes place at about 25º Celsius for about a week. Ice wines are also pressed in years with suitable weather conditions. Yeast spirits and bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. The winery is a member of the association "Wein vom Roten Hang".
