The estate is located in the Oestrich-Winkel municipality in the German wine-growing region Rheingau, The family has been growing wine since the 17th century. In 1860 Johann Hirschmann acquired the historic manor house, in whose old vaulted cellar the wines are still being expanded today. The new cellar building in 2007 also created space for modern viticulture technology. The company is now managed by Christoph and Gabriele Hirschmann. The vineyards cover six hectares of vineyards in the locations Doosberg, Klosterberg and lenchen (Oestrich), Gutenberg and Hasensprung (Winkel), and Edelmann (Mittelheim). They are mainly planted with Riesling and some Pinot Noir. The Rieslings are aged in steel tanks, the Pinot Noir in large wooden barrels. In suitable years, berries and ice wines are also pressed.
