The traditional winery is located in the community of Kanzem (Saar area) in the German Moselle wine region. The history goes back to the early 16th century. The estate came into the possession of the Grach-Weissebach-von Othegraven family in 1805. It was managed first by Katharina Grach-Weissebach (1789-1826) and later by Maria von Othegraven (1899-1995) until her death. Afterwards their niece, Dr. Heidi Kegel, took over the management. In the middle of 2010, the winery was taken over by TV presenter Günter Jauch (grandson of Elsa von Othegraven). Since 2004, Andreas Barth, who continues to run the Lubentiushof in Niederfell, was responsible for the development of the wines as cellar master. Since 2010 he is responsible as managing director.
The cultivated vineyards comprise 16 hectares of vineyards in mostly the individual sites Altenberg in the heart (Kanzem), Bockstein (Ockfen), Herrenberg (Wawern) and Kupp (Wiltingen). Dr. Heidi Kegel was able to prevent a planned, highly controversial land consolidation measure, in the course of which the Kanzemer Altenberg would have been cut through by a path at the middle of the steep slope. It is cultivated to 100% Riesling. The flagship is the "Riesling Kanzem Altenberg", marketed as Grosses Gewächs, which is also bottled in Magnums (1.5 l). The winery is a member of the VDP (Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter).
