The winery is located in the municipality of Nierstein (Nierstein area) in the German wine growing region of Rheinhessen. The traditional family has been growing wine on the Rhine for over 650 years. In 1850 Jakob Schlamp founded the winery in Nierstein. In 1874 his son Heinrich acquired the estate "General von Zastrow", the seat of the present company. Since 2008 the business has been managed by Kai and Caroline Schätzel. The vineyards comprise 14 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Heiligenbaum, Hipping, Ölberg and Pettenthal on the Red Slope (Nierstein). They are planted with the varieties Riesling (80%), Silvaner with its own Schätzel clone and Pinot Noir. The cultivation is carried out according to certified rules of organic (ecological) viticulture. Appropriate care measures in the vineyard result in small, loose, thick-skinned and thus very aromatic grapes with low, quality-enhancing yields.

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