The winery is located in the community of Randersacker (area Maindreieck) in the German wine growing region of Franconia
. The family has been growing wine in the Maindreieck for 700 years. The Randersackerer branch moved to this community in the middle of the 16th century. Since 2015 the business has been managed by Markus Schmachtenberger in the 12th generation. The vineyards comprise almost nine hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Marsberg
(Randersacker). They are planted with the white wine varieties Silvaner, Riesling, Rivaner, Scheurebe, Sauvignon blanc, Bacchus, Kerner, Pinot Blanc, Traminer and Rieslaner, as well as the red wine varieties Pinot Noir, Domina and Portugieser
On 1.5 hectares, organic viticulture
is practised according to the principles of sustainable
viticulture. The renunciation of herbicides
, however, applies to the entire vine population. Quality criteria are careful pruning in winter, shoot correction in spring, thinning out
and selective manual harvesting of ripe and healthy grapes. Depending on the type of wine, the wines are aged in steel tanks or in large wooden barrels. The product range is divided into litre wines (mostly from the Ewig Leben estate), Das neue Franken, Das klassische Franken and Das grosse Franken with the top wines. About 60,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The winery is a member of the associations Fränkisches Gewächs and Generation Riesling as well as the Franconian wine growers' group ETHOS.
