It will be near-natural viticulture with for example greening, manual removal of weeds and use of environmentally friendly means practiced. The different terroir naturally provides different types of wine. The Leitz variety Grüner Veltliner has a very special significance with ten hectares, it has been selected in the company since the 1930s. Therefore, the credo of the winery is also very understandable: the Grüner Veltliner is our strength .

Every year around 60,000 bottles of wine are produced. The winery is a member of the associations Premium wineries Weinviertel and Wineries Retzer Land,
