The estate is located in the commune of Fels am Wagram in the wine-growing region Wagram, The long tradition in viticulture is attested to by a wooden tree press dating from 1848. Wimmer-Czerny is the name of the farm, which refers to the last four generations of winegrower families. The business has been run by Ing. Johann Czerny jr. and his wife Astrid. From 1985, the vineyards were switched to high leaf walls and the right varieties were planted in the right locations. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vineyards in the vineyards of Felser Berg, Fumberg, Mitterweg, Scheiben and Weelfel. They are planted with the white varieties Grüner Veltliner (65%), Roter Veltliner (15%), Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Traminer, as well as the red varieties Zweigelt and Pinot Noir. The vineyards are cultivated according to the methods of biodynamic viticulture (recognized Demeterhof) cultivated. Practiced methods are greening (up to ten different plants are sown annually), organic fertilization (with compost), plant strengthening through biodynamic preparations and plant teas, and no insecticides and herbicides, By observing certain moon positions and planetary constellations for, for example, tillage, pruning and vinification, natural rhythms should be used to enhance positive effects.

Specially obtained natural yeasts are used for the fermentation of the musts instead of pure yeasts. Grapes are initially used for this, as well as later musts from certain locations. The white wines are stored after slow fermentation and repeated sedimentation filtration, and if necessary acid degradation for a long time on the lees, Filtration only takes place when filling. Bottling takes place as late as possible, the reserve, barrique and predicate wines are mostly summer. In red wines, after at least three weeks of maceration, the biological acid degradation takes place in large acacia barrels. The Zweigelt is bottled after 18 months and the reserve wine after 20 months using a coarse filter. Around 80,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Distillates are also produced. Animal husbandry is also carried out for high quality compost, which is why animal products are also marketed seasonally. The winery is a member of the organic association DEMETER,
