The "Weingut -Privatkellerei Johannes Deppisch" is located in the municipality of Erlenbach near Marktheidenfeld (Mainviereck area) in the German Franconian wine growing region. It was founded in 1872. The property also includes the restaurant "Weinhaus Anker", the "Weinkeller Schöpple" and the "Hotel Anker". It also organizes many impressive events such as vintage car festivals, vineyard tours with grill party and live music as well as company celebrations. Today, the business is run by Johannes Deppisch, the fifth generation of the family, and Jörg Liese is responsible for the cellar technology. The vineyards cover 25 hectares of vines in individual locations in two growing regions. In Franconia these are Krähenschnabel (Erlenbach), Feuerstein (Röttingen), Kallmuth (Homburg), Schlossberg (Klingenberg) and Kreuzberg (Marktheidenfeld). In Baden this is Mandelberg (Dertingen).

The vineyard is cultivated according to the principles of integrated plant protection. This is taken into account by fertilization with compost, pest control using confusing methods and beneficial insects, species-rich greening and wide rows of vines with airy vine training. Environmental awareness is also lived through unbleached paper, the return and reuse of bottles and the recycling of used corks.
