The winery is located in the municipality of Hammelburg (area Maindreieck) in the German wine-growing region of Franken. It is located between two towers of the former city wall. A hedge economy is attached. The Ruppert family has been living in Hammelburg for centuries and is engaged in agriculture, wine and fruit growing. Alfons Ruppert (1913-1998) created the basis for the present farm. Today it is run by mother Christiana and her three children Karin, as well as Stefan and Matthias after their training as viticulture technicians and practical experience with winegrowers in the region, Austria, Portugal, New Zealand and Australia. An excerpt from the company philosophy: "With wine knowledge, commitment and love for the profession, our trained eye recognizes the needs of the vines and can meet them in a targeted manner".

The vineyards cover 7.5 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Heroldsberg and Trautlestal (Hammelburg). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, Bacchus, Ortega, Optima and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Domina and Portugieser. The cultivation is done in a natural way with yield-reducing, quality-enhancing measures. The wines are carefully matured. The quality pyramid comprises the levels Great Wines (Spätlese to Trockenbeerenauslese), Classic Franconia (Kabinett wines in Bocksbeutel), Young Franconia (Rotling, Rosé, light Riesling, Cuvées) and Basic Franconia (estate wines in litre bottles). Fine spirits (yeast, wine, fruit) and liqueurs are also produced. The winery is a member of the association Generation Riesling.
