The winery is located in the community of Bad Kreuznach
in the German Nahe
wine region. The winegrowing tradition of the family goes back to the year 1627. In 1842 two brothers of the 10th generation emigrated to America, of whom Eberhard Anheuser founded today's Anheuser-Busch brewery group in St. Louis (Missouri). His nephew Rudolf Anheuser is considered one of the most important winegrowing pioneers on the Nahe River. He expanded the business to its current size, planted vineyards in pure set and introduced bottling. His descendant Paul Anheuser, after whom the winery is named today, pushed the development of dry wines. In 1969 Rudolf P. Anheuser, the 13th generation, took over the estate, and since 2005 it has been managed in the 14th generation by the two brothers Rudolf and Paul Anheuser.
The vineyards cover 45 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Berg
and Höllenpfad (Roxheim), Dellchen
and Pfingstweide (Niederhausen), Kehrenberg, Rotenberg
and Schlossberg (Altenbamberg), Brückes
, Forst, Hinkelstein
, Kapellenpfad, Kauzenberg, Krötenpfuhl
, Osterhöll, St. Martin and Rosenberg (Kreuznach), and Felsberg, Heimberg, In den Felsen
and Mühlberg (Schloßböckelheim). The dominant leading variety is Riesling, others are the white wine varieties Grüner Sylvaner, Grauer Burgunder, Weißer Burgunder, Scheurebe and Müller-Thurgau, and the red wine varieties Blauer Spätburgunder and Dornfelder. Wine-growing is consistently carried out in close contact with nature. Quality criteria are low pruning for mature, high-quality grapes, pressing with low pressure to preserve taste, fermentation in small oak barrels, storage on and cold-sterile bottling. Wines from the treasure chamber
are offered until 1969. We also produce fine spirits (wine, yeast) bottle-fermented sparkling wine and grape juice.
