Weingut Karthäuserhof, ran by Christoph Tyrell and family, is located in the village of Eitelsbach, a small village on the Ruwer, a tributary of the upper Mosel, near the town of Trier. There has been viticulture in Eitelsbach for centuries, if not millennia.
Today Christoph cares for almost 19 hectares of vines in the Karthäuserhofberg vineyard, which is situated in on the right bank of the Ruwer, on the slopes behind the town of Eitelsbach. On the far side of the river lies the Maximiner vineyard, and the Maximin Grünhaus trio of Abtsberg, Herrenberg and Bruderberg. Karthäuserhofberg, the sole source of fruit for the estate, it is an amalgamation of five original vineyards, these being Burgberg, Kronenberg, Orthsberg, Sang and Stirn. In the 1980s the Tyrells brought these vineyards together as one, and ever since then they have labelled their wines simply as Eitelsbacher Karthäuserhofberger, eschewing the individual vineyard names.
