The winery is located in the Schäfer-Fröhlich Bockenau community in the German region Near . It is since the early 1970s, operated by Hans and Karin Fröhlich already in fifth-generation families. The tradition will continue with son Tim, who is since 1996 responsible for the cellar. The vineyards cover 12.5 hectares of vineyards in the layers Felseneck and Stromberg (Bockenau) Frühlingsplätzchen and Halenberg (Monzingen), and Felsenberg and Copper Mine (Castle Böckelheim). They are planted to 80% with Riesling, as well as the varieties Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. The Riesling is harvested very late and selectively. The fermentation occurs with selected yeasts and spontaneous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Since 2001, the winery is a member of the VDP (Association of German VDP).
