The estate is located in the municipality of Ernst (area Castle Cochem - Terrassenmosel) three kilometers upstream from Cochem in the German wine-growing region Moselle, The operation is led by Peter Dax, supported by son Oliver. The philosophy of the house is: life of nature and with nature, always giving everything for a good wine . The vineyards cover four hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Klostergarten (Cochem), Herrenberg (Valwig), Rathausberg (Bruttig), Kapellenberg (Fankel), and Kirchlay and Feuerberg (Ernst). They are three-quarters with the white varieties Riesling (60%), Kerner, Müller-Thurgau, Bacchus and Pinot Gris, and planted to a quarter of the red varieties Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. The largely laborious to be processed Steilagenterrassen be managed conventionally.

During processing, attention is paid to gentle processing of selected grapes and young must from the vineyard to the cellar. The wines are vinified separately according to grape variety and left to bottling as possible. For the steep slope Riesling from the Valwiger Herrenberg takes place to one third spontaneous fermentation, He is only after a long, four-month storage on the lees bottled. The Pinot Noir takes place after a three-week maceration of the highly ripe grapes in small fermentation tanks an 18-month aging in barriques. The wine is then without pumps and without filtration bottled. Every year around 40,000 bottles of wine are produced, around 10% of which are exported to Belgium. There are also brandies (wine, pomace, yeast, peach), liqueurs, grapeseed oil and vinegar generated. The winery is a member of Generation Riesling and Breva Wine & Way.
