The winery is located in the municipality of Piesport (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle, The family winery has been active here since 1337 in viticulture. In 1968, Hugo Schwang took over the management of the winery from his grandparents Matthias Reuscher and Elisabeth Haart. His son Mario studied at the University of Applied Sciences Geisenheim "Beverage Technology and Enology" and took over the estate from his father in mid-2005. The vineyards cover 4.5 hectares of vineyards in the Piesporter Lagen Falkenberg, canon. Goldtröpfchen and podium. They are 95% Riesling, as well as some Rivaner and Regent planted. Since 1987 integrated crop protection without acaricides (mites) and insecticides practiced. The plants are completely landscaped and wide rows of vines guarantee optimal sunning and exposure. The quality concept goes from limited yield per hectare of 6,000 to 7,000 liters per hectare, later selective vintage by hand, gentle grape processing (without enzyme addition), only first pressing for Gutsabfüllungen, extremely cold fermentation, about three months storage on the lees, Filtration only after natural self-clarification (without clarifying agent, blue shade, gelatin and metatartaric ) as well as cold sterile filling (mostly April to July). Grape juice, wine vinegar and bottle-fermented sparkling wine are also produced.
