The winery is located in the municipality Bingen-Kempten (Bingen area) in the German region Rheinhessen, The traditional family has been wine-growing here for over 100 years.

A vinotheque and a wine school set up in two former classrooms are connected. During the year there are court festivals, literary wine tastings, wine walks, and events with wine and music. The vineyards cover 12 hectares of vineyards around the Rochusberg and in individual locations Scharlachberg and Schlossberg-Chat (Bingen).
