The winery is located in the municipality of Nierstein (Nierstein area) in the German wine-growing region of Rheinhessen. The traditional family has been cultivating wine on the Rhine for over 650 years. Jakob Schlamp founded the winery in Nierstein in 1850, and his son Heinrich acquired the "General von Zastrow" estate in 1874, the location of today's winery. Since 2008, the winery has been run by Kai and Caroline Schätzel. The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vines in the single vineyards Heiligenbaum, Hipping, Ölberg and Pettenthal on the Rote Hang (Nierstein). They are planted with the varieties Riesling (80%), Silvaner with its own Schätzel clone and Pinot Noir. The vineyards are cultivated according to the certified rules of organic viticulture. Appropriate care in the vineyard results in small, loose-berried, thick-skinned and thus very aromatic grapes with low, quality-enhancing yields.

The elaborate selective harvest is carried out in up to six rounds per vineyard. The vinification of the wines takes place in the 800-year-old cellar. The white wines are almost exclusively fermented spontaneously with the vineyard's own yeasts and stored for a long time on the full le es. The red wines are aged for up to 36 months in 600-litre wooden barrels made of German oak after the classic mash fermentation with frequent manual punching down of the mash. The product range follows the VDP classification model (estate wine, local wine, Grosses Gewächs, Prädikat wine). Around 65,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the associations VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter), as well as Wein vom Roten Hang and Riesling Lounge.
