The winery is located in the municipality of Mönchhof in the Burgenland DAC area of Neusiedlersee (Austria). It was built up by the family practically from scratch in 1975. After viticultural training in Eisenstadt and Krems as well as internships in two renowned wineries in Austria and California, the winery has been managed by Johannes Berger since 2000. The winery was expanded and modernised between 2006 and 2008 with new buildings for processing (press house) and storage. According to the philosophy of the winery, the primary goal is to produce very good quality.

The vineyards cover 18 hectares of vineyards in the vineyards Breitenteiläcker, Holzäcker, Kurzbürg, Langbürg, Obere Pohnpühl, Pötschenäcker, Rappühlweingärten, Spählingäcker, Theiltenäcker, Waldäcker and Wiesenackerl with quite different soil types. They are planted with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Shiraz (Syrah), St. Laur ent, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Rathay, and with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Scheurebe, Welschriesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Neuburger and Gewürztraminer. The vineyards are cultivated using natural, environmentally friendly methods. These include the use of plant protection products that are gentle on beneficial insects, fertilisation only after prior assessment (soil analysis) and the use of no herbicides for weed control.

The cellar work is carried out largely without chemical cleaning agents; instead, hot water and high-pressure cleaners are used. The vinification process uses both traditional methods and modern technology. Most of the fermentation is carried out with pure yeasts; certain wines are fermented spontaneously for the purpose of individual development. The grapes of the white wines are fermented slowly without destemming after gentle pressing and aged in stainless steel tanks or in large wooden barrels. The crushed grapes for the red wines are fermented in vats or special red wine fermentation tanks (with overpumping) and are then left to macerate for up to four weeks. Depending on the type of wine, the wine is aged for 8 to 12 months in stainless steel, or 18 to 30 months in large wooden barrels or in barriques. In years with suitable weather conditions, Trockenbeerenauslese and ice wines are also produced.
