The estate is located in the municipality Mülheim (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle, From the ancestors of the family were cultivated since 1706 vineyards. Today the company is run by Jörg Bauer and son Thomas. The vineyards cover over eight hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Juffer ( Brauneberg ), Elisenberg and Kirchberg (Veldenz), as well as Elisenberg and Sonnenlay (Mülheim). They are mainly planted with Riesling, and Müller-Thurgau, Kerner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Dornfelder. Quality criteria in the vineyard are low start, targeted thin out and late, selective hand picking from October to November. After gentle pressing, a cool and slow fermentation takes place in a classic wooden barrel or in a stainless steel tank. This is followed by a long storage on the lees until the spring of next year. In weather-appropriate years and ice wines are pressed. It also produces brandies (pomace) and fruit liqueurs.
