The winery is located in the community of Gleisweiler (area Südliche Weinstraße) in the German wine growing region Pfalz
. The family has been growing wine here for generations. In 1954 the first bottled wine was sold. The red wines are aged in an old vaulted cellar dating back to 1610. Some of the large wooden barrels were still made by Alfons Argus, who sold wine in small wooden containers to the surrounding innkeepers in addition to his farming activities. Today the estate is managed by the grandson Peter Argus. The vineyards cover seven hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Kalkgrube
(Gleisweiler) and Münzberg
(Godramstein). They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (2.5 ha), Pinot Gris, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Kerner, Sauvignon Blanc, Silvaner and Bacchus, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir (0.5 ha), Regent, Dornfelder, Cabernet Dorsa, Portugieser and Frühburgunder. We practice consistently controlled, environmentally friendly viticulture. The white wines are aged in stainless steel with fermentation cooling, the red wines in large wooden barrels or in barriques. Since 1988, bottle-fermented sparkling wines have also been produced. The winery is a member of the association KUW (Controlled environmentally friendly viticulture).
