The winery is located in the Freistadt Rust in the Burgenland (Austria). It was founded in the 1940s by Gustav Feiler, who first marketed bottled wine in 1947. The headquarters are in a baroque town house with a historical cellar, the origins of which date back to the 16th century. The company is today run by Hans (vineyards) and his wife Inge Feiler, as well as their son Kurt Feiler (Keller) and his wife Katrin. The vineyards cover 30 hectares of vineyards. They are 65% with the red varieties Blaufränkisch , Zweigelt, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and Shiraz, and 35% with the white varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Welschriesling, Traminer, Neuburger, Muskat-Ottonel, Sauvignon Blanc and Ruländer planted. The vineyards have been in accordance with the company motto "Intact nature - Healthy soil - Great wines" since 2008 organically farmed.

Most of the dry white wines are aged in a steel tank. After the biological acid degradation, the red wines mature in large wooden barrels and then for a further 15 to 18 months in new barriques made from French and to a small extent German oak. The company is one of the best sweet wine producers in Austria and internationally. The premium wines include, for example, various Rust outbreak in the variants base to essence, the "Cuvée Gustav" named after the founder and matured in barriques and matured (depending on the vintage), the "Cuvée Solitaire" ( Blaufränkisch , Merlot, Zweigelt), and the "Numbers Cuvée", which has been numbered consecutively since 1993 from 999 (Cabernet Franc, Merlot).
