Today Axel Schmitt the responsibility as owner and cellar master. 4 generations live and work in the winery, firmly rooted in the culture of the region and enthusiastic about what the wine means to us:
Joie de vivre, nature experience, hospitality and enjoyment.

Unspent Parendzina soil of the Rheinhessen outskirts and the former small climate characterize the wines.

Celebrate with us Rheinhessen wine culture in the special atmosphere of the historic estate with vaulted cellar, cow chapel, barn and large courtyard under the lime tree.

Enjoy (in spring / summer) a wine tasting at the lily pond with live frog concert, in the rain in the winter garden under the palm trees.


On the estate German, English and French are spoken.
