The estate runs under a civil law partnership, Gesellschaft bürgerlichen Rechts (GbR), an association of individuals united in achieving a common goal. Josef Kreis, the chief winemaker, his wife, Ulrike, and son Jochen look after the winery. After marrying Sarah in 2012, Jochen expanded the winery and introduced the latest technology in the cellar. Today, Josef works in the cellar, Jochen manages the vineyards, and Ulrike and Sarah take care of the sales and events department.
