The winery in the municipality of Stuttgart-Untertürkheim is located in the German wine-growing
region of Württemberg
. It is already in its sixth family generation of winegrowing. The father of the current owner left the winegrowers' cooperative in 1960 and began bottling his own wine. Hans-Peter Wöhrwag took over the winery in 1990, having studied in Geisenheim
and gained experience in Napa Valley, California. The vineyards comprise 20 hectares of vineyards in the individual locations Altenberg, Herzogenberg
(solely owned) and Mönchberg
. They are planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (40%), Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Müller-Thurgau, Sauvignon Blanc and Muskateller, as well as the red wine varieties Trollinger, Lemberger, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Dornfelder. Among the premium wines of the house are above all the Rieslings, the red wine cuvées Philipp (80% Lemberger, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon) and Cuvée X (50% each Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon), as well as noble sweet specialities.
