The estate is located in the commune of Neustadt-Haardt (Mittelhaardt-Deutsche Weinstraße area) in the German wine-growing region palatinate
, On December 9, 1600 Kaspar Kaub, imperial master cook at the Hofburg in Prague, was awarded a coat of arms letter by Emperor Rudolf II (1552-1612) for his excellent cooking skills. The Kaub family, who has been shown to be associated with viticulture in Haardt just a few years later, still bears this coat of arms to this day. The family winery is now managed by Karl-Heinz Kaub. The vineyards cover five hectares of vineyards in the locations Buergergarten
(Haardt), as well Eselshaut
(Mußbach). They are planted 60% with the white varieties Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Rieslaner, Scheurebe and Gewürztraminer, and 40% with the red varieties Pinot Noir, Lemberger ( Blaufränkisch
), Acolon, St. Laurent, Cabernet Mitos and dark fields.
It is consistently practiced natural, environmentally friendly viticulture with, for example, natural fertilizers and crop protection measures. Quality criteria are careful pruning, thinning out of excess grapes, selective hand picking of ripe grapes that are as optimal as possible, quick pressing (maximum three hours after harvesting) and strong clarification of the must. The white wines are fermented cool and aged in the steel tank mostly dry and semi-dry. After the traditional mash fermentation, the red wines mature in large old wooden barrels or at least ten months in barriques. The winery is a member of the three winegrowers' associations Vinissima
