The estate is located in the Siklós municipality in the Hungarian wine-growing region Villány, It was founded by the Swiss-German couple Evelyne and Erhard Heumann at the end of the 1990s and gradually built up. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vineyards, which are planted with the red varieties Cabernet Franc, Kékfrankos ( Blaufränkisch ), Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, as well as with the white varieties Rheinriesling, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer.

Around 90% of the space has the premium status of DHC (Districtus Hungaricus Controllatus) Villány. The DHC regulations stipulate, among other things, a planting density of at least 5,000 sticks per hectare, which is exceeded with up to 7,000 sticks / ha. The earnings is 30 to 40 hl / ha for the red wine varieties and thus significantly below the DHC requirements of 60 hl / ha. The yield is also reduced accordingly for the white wine varieties.

The annual production amounts to 40,000 to 50,000 bottles annually, with the red wines making up the majority. Rosé and white wines complement the offer. The wines become part unmixed (Cabernet Franc, Kékfrankos, Syrah) and partly as cuvées (Lagona, Terra Tartaro). The red wines are used in a maximum of four times barriques or double barriques made of Hungarian oak, the white wines and the rosé aged in steel tanks.
