The Binz family can be traced back to the middle of the 19th Century with their vineyards in Nackenheim. Eberhard and Peter Binz built up the estate at that time, followed by Simon Binz, who unfortunately died at an early age. In 1959, Manfred Binz inherited the estate. A new house and premises were built in 1960 at the foot of the Rothenberg slope, incorporating a 200-year-old cellars, set into the red sandstone hillside. The buildings and cellars were enlarged in 1976. Today, the sons Rainer and Manfred Jr., who have both experienced extensive viticultural training, manage the estate; Rainer being responsible for the vineyards, Manfred for the cellars.
