The winery is located in the municipality of Kröv (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region of Mosel. It is one of the oldest wineries on the Moselle. In 862, King Lothar II. (835-869) donated the estate to the Benedictine monastery of Stavelot, which owned it until the Napoleonic secularisation. In 1805, the estate was acquired by the French state through Peter Schneiders, an ancestor of the current owners. Today, the estate is run by Jan Matthias Klein. The vineyards cover nine hectares of vines in the single vineyard sites Letterlay, Paradies and Steffensberg (Kröv), Hofberger (Neumagen-Dhron), and Treppchen (Piesport). They are 75% planted with Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Sauvignon Blanc,Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder and Regent. Organic viticulture is practised according to the rules of ECOVIN.
The wines are produced in the lines "Schoppenweine", "Motivweine" (light and fruity), "Wappenweine" (from old vines on steep slopes) and "Signaturweine" (Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese). In years with suitable weather conditions, ice wines are also produced. Premium wines are the site Rieslings, "Alte Reben" (Riesling from ungrafted vines in single-pole training) and the red wine cuvée "Drei Farben Rot". Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, noble brandies (yeast, marc, fruit), and grape juices are also produced. The winery is a member of the international Slow Food association and the winegrowers' association Der klitzekleine Ring.
