The winery is located in the municipality of Glanz in the Austrian wine-growing region of Southern Styria at the highest point of the Langeggerberg near the border with Slovenia. It was taken over and rebuilt by Andreas and Elisabeth Tscheppe Tübernommen (brother Ewald Tscheppe owns the Werlitsch winery). The new vineyards have been laid out on terraces and cover four hectares of vines, three of which are trrassed. They are planted with the white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Morillon, , Gelber Muskateller and Goldmuskateller, as well as withPinot Noir. Biodynamic viticulture is practised on all vineyards. The work in the vineyard is partly carried out taking into account the phases of the moon, in order to include the effect of the moon on the water and thus also on the plants. The aim is to grow mighty vines with deep roots, because these reach deeper layers of soil

Vinification still takes place in the cellar of the nearby family home. The wines are produced in two different lines. The classic "at-line" is aged in stainless steel tanks. The second line comprises the puristic wines. These are fermented spontaneously and mature exclusively in traditional . There were separate labels for each line, with pictures of native animals such as salamander, dragonfly and stag beetle being used for the individual varieties. A speciality are the so-called "Erdfass wines". For these, selected grapes are fermented spontaneously. After 14 days of maceration, the wine is transferred to a wooden barrel, where the remaining fermentation and the take place. The barrel is then buried in the earth over the winter months. This is to use the energy, which is particularly strong during the winter months, underground for the maturation of the wine. Grape juice, kernel oil and marc spirit are also produced.
