The "Weingut von Racknitz" is located in the community of Odernheim in the German Nahe wine region. It is the former estate of the Disibodenberg monastery. For more than 200 years, the vineyard and monastery ruins have been owned by the von Racknitz family. The ruins were transferred to the Scivias Foundation in 1989. Luise von Racknitz-Adams and Matthias Adams have been the owners of the estate since 2003. The vineyards comprise 15 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations of Rotenfels (Traisen), Königsfels (Schloßböckelheim), Disibodenberg Monastery almost exclusively owned (Odernheim), as well as Hermannshöhle, Kertz, Klamm, Kieselberg (Oberhausen) and Rosenheck (Niederhausen). They are planted with Riesling vines up to 60 years old. The work is carried out according to the guidelines of organic viticulture. A special feature is the consistent location- and origin-related development, which emphasizes the Nahe-specificity of the heterogeneity of the soils. The fermentation is always carried out with the vineyard's own yeasts (no pure yeasts). The wines are stored on the in steel tanks until bottling. With the exception of the noble sweet wines, all wines are marketed as quality wines p.A.

In November 2008, Luise von Racknitz-Adams found feral old vines of the historic grape variety White Orleans in the Disibodenberg monastery in an uncultivated area. For the grape variety researcher Andreas Jung, who examined the extraordinary find, these old vines are the oldest in Germany and probably even in the world. He assumes that they are at least 500 years old and date from the time (1559) when the monastery and the associated viticulture on the historic terraces were abandoned. Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) had entered this monastery in 1112 as a very young novice. Offshoots are grown from the wild five Orléans vines, with which a vineyard is to be replanted. According to EU regulations, the vineyard must be managed as an experimental vineyard. First yields are not expected before 2014.
