Pharmacist and inventor Friedrich Koch laid the foundation stone for our winery in 1833 with the first vineyard purchases. His son Carl Koch, mayor of Oppenheim, led it to its present size at the end of the 19th century.
The estate is in the hand of the seventh generation of the family, since 2009 Paul Berkes is the owner.
80% of the 12 ha of vineyards are located in the highest classified slopes above Oppenheim and Dienheim. Since 2010, the areas are cultivated biologically.
