The winery is located in the community of Purbach in the Burgenland DAC area Leithaberg (Austria). The family has been growing wine for over 400 years. Today it is managed by Birgit Braunstein. The restaurant "Pauli's Stuben" and the hotel "Landgut Braunstein" was founded in 1979 by the parents Paul and Maria Braunstein. The vineyards comprise 22 hectares of vineyards in the areas Edelgraben, Fellner, Glauberinzer, Goldberg, Heide and Rosenberg. They are planted 70% with the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and 30% with the white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay Pinot Blanc and Welschriesling. Natural viticulture is practised. The grape zone is located at 60 cm vine height, which allows the grapes to benefit from the reflected heat of the soil. Likewise, the 130 cm high leaf wall allows a better sugar ripening. Further quality criteria are targeted soil and vine cultivation, defoliation, consistent grape reduction and healthy and physiologically ripe grape material obtained by selective manual harvesting

Through the grape take-over point, which is adapted to the house, the grapes are unloaded without the use of pumps, then, with some exceptions, they are crushed and gently processed. The conical, temperature-controlled red wine stainless steel tanks enable continuous pumping over (oxygen supply) and a controlled maceration period. The white wines are fermented in temperature-controlled steel tanks. The white and also red wines remain on the yeast for up to six months. The classic red wines are stored in large wooden barrels for one year, the wines aged in barriques for two years. Premium wines are various Leithaberg DAC, as well as the Oxhoft line bottled without filtration. Around 70,000 litres of wine are produced annually. A good part is exported to Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Poland, Switzerland and Sweden. It also produces fine spirits (wine, grape marc), bottle-fermented sparkling wine, vinegar and grape jam. The winery is a member of the association 11 Women & their Wines founded by Birgit Braunstein.
