The estate is located in the community of Bad-Neuenahr-Ahrweiler in the German wine-growing region Ahr
, The traditional family has been operating viticulture since 1599, the estate was built in 1922. Senior Peter-Josef handed over the management in 1987 to his son Hans-Peter and now runs the tenth generation with his wife Tanja the operation. The vineyards cover four hectares of vines in the layers of church turrets, Schieferlay
, (Bad Neuenahr), as well as Rosenthal
(Ahrweiler). They are planted with the red varieties Pinot Noir, Portuguese, Frühburgunder and Dornfelder, and with the white varieties Müller-Thurgau and Riesling. The vineyards are managed conventionally, the pest control of the steep slopes is done partly by helicopter spraying. The floors are covered with straw to improve water retention and to ensure optimal humus supply. The red wines are traditionally subjected to a five- to ten-day open mash fermentation in stainless steel tank as possible with vineyard-owned yeasts and expanded mostly in large barrels. Only smaller batches mature in new barriques. The red wine developed in barrique "J * A * C + N" from Frühburgunder or Pinot Noir was named after the first letters of the first names of the four children. The white wines developed in the steel tank make up only a small proportion.
