The Herrenhof Mußbach Association was founded in 1983 with the goal to renovate the centuries-old winery and revive it with every kind of culture activity and make the oldest winery in the Palatinate, open to the public. In nearly ten years of construction, the buildings have been restored and renovated. The entire complex of buildings, yard area survived through the time of secularization by Napoleon in 1803. The founding documents date back to the 7th century – the architectural styles of the renovated building, however, belong to later periods. The tireless members of the association saved the historic and unique Johanniter winery from decay and oblivion.
After 166 000 volunteer work hours, a local culture centre was created, which has attracted since 1991, every year thousands of people from near and far. Here governments have met, churches held services, world-famous artists have exhibited, government ministers and prime ministers dined, adventurers have been reported, local and foreign citizens have shown their skills in all genres. About 1,600 members have joined the association and it is anticipated that many more will join, because of the cultural programs on offer.
The Herrenhof has been the ongoing host to the Art Imaginär exhibitions.
