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 grapes since 1648. In 1923, Louis Jean George Guntrum, the 8th generation, built the present estate house directly on the Rhine. Today, Louis Konstantin Guntrum is the 11th generation to run the estate, which is still owned by the family. He is also the sole shareholder and managing director of Louis Guntrum Weinkellerei GmbH, which sells wines in over 60 countries worldwide. The cellar master is Rüdiger Steck. The vineyards cover ten hectares in the 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 Pinot Noir. Natural, environmentally friendly viticulture is practised according to the specifications of the DLG (German Agricultural Society). The musts are taken from the wine press to the cellar without mechanical stress. The white wines ferment in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The red grapes are generally destemmed, and fermentation takes place for about a week at around 25º Celsius. In years with suitable weather conditions, ice wines are also produced. Yeast brandies and bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. The winery is a member of the "Wein vom Roten Hang" association.
