The estate is located in the community Winningen (area Burg Cochem) in the German wine-growing region Moselle
, It was founded by Richard Richter in 1838 and today is run by Claus-Martin Richter and his cousin Thomas. The vineyards cover nearly seven hectares of vineyards in the Winninger Lagen Brückstück, Domgarten, Hamm, Röttgen
, They are planted to 90% with Riesling, and Pinot Noir, Frühburgunder, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay. Although the vaulted cellar under the winery building is filled with wooden barrels, they have not been used since 1995 to expand the wines. The romantic atmosphere will continue to be used for representation purposes. The Rieslings are matured in stainless steel tanks, the Pinot Noir in used barriques. The premium wines have been closed with stainless steel bottle caps of the "Stainless Cap" brand for some time now. Since 1987, bottle fermented Gutssekte from Riesling are produced.
