The Hoflößnitz is located in the municipality of Radebeul in the German wine-growing region Saxony, It can look back on over 600 years of winegrowing tradition up to 1401. Until the 19th century, the historical ensemble was the center of the manorial viticulture and site of courtly festivities in the Elbe valley. At the beginning of the 20th century, a state wine-growing research and teaching institute was established. Today the complex is owned by the city of Radebeul and includes a winery museum, a winery, a wine bar and a guest house. The facility is a listed building. Jörg Hahn is the managing director, and Felix Hößelbarth has been responsible as cellar master since 2008.

The vineyards cover eight hectares of vineyards in individual locations Golden wagon and Johannisberg (Radebeul). They are planted with the white varieties Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Traminer and Riesling, as well as with the red varieties Regent and Pinot Noir. The vineyards are cultivated according to the guidelines of the Organic viticulture farmed. This means, among other things, the development of an active soil life through microorganisms, promotion of beneficials, consistent avoidance of chemical agents and only the use of organic fertilizers with the aim of healthy and high-quality grapes. Certified organic wines are produced.
