The traditional winery is located in the municipality of Kitzeck im Sausal in the Austrian wine-growing region of Southern Styria. The origins of the family business date back to 1848, when the Graz businessman Carl Aberth acquired the winery in Kitzeck. The vernacular turned Aberth into "Albert" and thus established the house name. The childless Aberth left the estate to his nephew Gustaf Zettel, the great-grandfather of the present owner. Zettl, who ran a schnapps, liqueur and vinegar factory in Ödenburg (Sopron). He expanded the estate in Kitzeck as a summer resort. The business was taken over in 1950 by Ing. Wilfried v. Cramer, who laid the foundation stone for the present winery. He handed over the business to his son Christian in 1984 and his son Leopold Cramer in 2011. A wine bar is attached. Guest rooms are also rented out.
