The winery is located in the municipality of Konz-Oberemmel (Saar area) in the German Moselle wine region. It was formerly part of the St. Maximin monastery estate, which was secularised under Napoleon's rule. In 1803 Emmerich Grach bought vineyards from the now state-owned property and thus founded the winery. In 1902, by inheritance, it passed to his great-granddaughter, who was married to Balduin von Hövel. Since mid-2011, the estate has been owned by his great-great-grandson Maximilian von Kunow, with Albrecht Schmitt acting as cellar master. The vineyards comprise 12 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Agritiusberg, Hütte in sole ownership and Rosenberg (Oberemmel), Hörecker in sole ownership (Kanzem), as well as plots in the legendary Scharzhofberg (Wiltingen). They are exclusively planted with Riesling. The wines from Rosenberg and Agritiusberg are marketed as estate Riesling under the name "Balduin von Hövel". The reduced yield is on average 55 hectolitres/hectare. The wines are matured in the traditional wooden barrel, mainly fruity. The winery is a member of the VDP.
