After studying in Geisenheim and practical experience at renowned wineries is the responsibility of Matthias Knebel. The vineyards today comprise nearly seven hectares.

The rest is on the layers Bruckstück, Hamm and mills distributed.

For the most part, Riesling and some Pinot Blanc are cultivated. After consistent reduction of yield and strictly selective harvest, the grapes may be sorted again before pressing. The musts are then in principle in wood and stainless steel spontaneous fermented with natural yeasts. Great emphasis is placed on the traditional Natural Wine thoughts placed. In addition to the dry wines, there are regularly noble sweet Rieslings. Only for the latter are predicate terms used.
