The winery is located in the municipality of Gorca in Slovenska Štájerska (Lower Styria) in the Haloze region in the Podravje wine region of Slovenia. It is owned by the Gross family (municipality of Ratsch) in southern Styria (Austria) and is managed by Maria and Michael Gross. This area belonged to Austria-Hungary during the Habsburg monarchy until 1918. The first vineyard was acquired in 2005 and the area has been constantly expanded. In 2011, a technically renovated cellar (press house, vaulted cellar) located high above Gorca was put into operation. Today the vineyards cover 18 hectares of vines at an altitude of 300 to 500 metres above sea level in extreme steepness up to 65% slope inclination on exclusively terraced slopes.
They are planted with the white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Šipon(Furmint), Traminec(Gewürztraminer), Laški Rizling(Welschriesling) and Renski Rizling(Rheinriesling). Just like in the family estate in Ratsch, the cultivation is carried out in a natural way. This includes, among other things, fertilization with self-produced compost and the avoidance of pesticides such as herbicides, insecticides and fungicides. An old name of the local wine growing region is "Kolos". The name in use in the k.k.-era is derived from "Colles" and means in this context "hilly wine country". This is the name of a pure Sauvignon Blanc. Another wine is "Gorca" (Furmint), as well as cuvées of Sauvignon Blanc, Traminer and Welschriesling.
