The estate is located in the municipality of Essenheim (area Nierstein) in the German wine-growing region Rheinhessen
, The traditional farm can look back on more than 300 years of winemaking tradition, because already in 1692 ancestors of the Wagner family acquired vineyards here. In the 19th century, Jean Wagner (1875-1965) acquired great merit, and as a great admirer of French culture and viticulture brought with him new ideas for red wine making from his trips to France. Since the year 2002, the estate is managed by the brothers Wagner. Ulrich Wagner, who after his studies in Geisenheim
in Baden and South Africa gained experience, is responsible for the cellar. Dr. Andreas Wagner returned to the business after studying politics and history and was responsible for the sales of the wines. He also works as a mystery writer and has so far written five works from the winegrowing milieu.
The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards in the individual layers Römerberg and Teufelspfad (Essenheim). They are planted with the white varieties Riesling, Silvaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Scheurebe, Morio-Muscat and Ortega, and with the red varieties Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Portuguese, Dornfelder and Regent. Special emphasis is placed on strict yield limits and careful winemaking. The product range comprises three lines.
