Elke and Eckhard Weitzel manage seven hectares of vines in Ingelheim-Großwinternheim. In the peak hours they are supported by daughter Romy and son-in-law Stephan. Out of caring for the family and knowing that the management of wine in harmony with nature provides the best base for a multi-faceted wine, since 1993 they have devoted themselves to organic viticulture. Since 2013, the winery has been a member of Bioland.
40% of the grapevines grow in the stony southern slope Bockstein. This up to 45 percent steep slope is characterized by numerous dry stone walls. The vines are rooted in tertiary limestone. Spätburgunder, Portugieser, Carbernet Souvignon, Sankt Laurent and Dornfelder are the red wines, which accounted for 60 percent of the varied offer. The white varieties are Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, Silvaner and Morio Muskat. The ripe grapes are gently harvested by hand and selected.
