The winery is located in the wine town Langenlois in the Lower Austrian wine region Kamptal, The traditional peasant family of Summerers has been based here since 1679. Alfred Summerer converted the formerly mixed agricultural enterprise to pure viticulture and created the basis of today's quality enterprise.

From the Summerer winery, this means communication with the flora and fauna with due regard for animals, plants and soil. As enthusiastic vegetarians neither animal products (gelatin) are used, nor are positive vibrations from the cosmos brought about with animal aids. Animals like deer and rabbits are not considered game damage the enemies causing the winemaker understood, because their excretions represent an external glandular system for the plant world and contain valuable organic information.

By gentle whole grape pressing by means of a pneumatic system, the fruit flavors are preserved and the release of bitter substances, tannins and histamines avoided. During the fermentation process, the tanks are cooled by cold well water, thus achieving an aroma-preserving fermentation process. The wines generally mature in stainless steel tanks. Throughout the fully automated filling process, contact between wine and oxygen is avoided by using carbon dioxide. There are also Rieslings and Grüner Veltliner Kamptal DAC produced. Summerer was the first Austrian winery to include the glass cap Vinolok has been used as standard. Since the 2005 vintage, all of the wines produced have been "cork-free" without exception.
