The estate is located in the Stratzing municipality near the city Krems in the Lower Austrian wine region Kremstal, The winegrower's house was bought by the great-grandfather of today's manager Maria Graf-Faltl in 1890 and has been passed down through generations. The Koststüberl dates from the 16th century and is decorated with Renaissance rosettes. In the upper part of the cellar, the Gothic vault dates from the 14th to 15th centuries. The vineyards cover six hectares of vineyards in most of the large Krems location sandpit that are planted with the varieties Grüner Veltliner, Rivaner, Malvasier ( Frühroter Veltliner ), Chardonnay and Blauer Zweigelt. The management follows the guidelines of the KIP (Controlled Integrated Production).
