The winery is located in the municipality of Deutschkreutz in the Austrian DAC area of Mittelburgenland. The red wine pioneer Hans Igler (+1994) was considered a grand seigneur, doyen and charismatic leading figure for many Burgenland winegrowers. He was the first Burgenland winemaker to experiment with barrique ageing, which was still unknown in Austria at the beginning of the 1980s. He was also one of the first to expose a large quantity of Cabernet Sauvignon and dared to try a red wine cuvée. In collaboration with the painter Prof. Anton Lehmden, he created Austria's first artistically designed label series.

Today the company is continued by Waltraud Reisner-lgler and Wolfgang Reisner. Son Clemens, after training at the viticulture school in Eisenstadt and practices in the Australian winery Veritas(Barossa Valley) and in the wineries of Count Neipperg (St. Émilion, Bordeaux), has been fully integrated into the business since the 2005 vintage and is jointly responsible for the cellar. After extensive renovation, the "Schaflerhof" was put into operation in June 2009. This branch serves as a barrique warehouse, Vulcano vinotheque, tasting and club room, as well as a modern event location in contemporary architecture and historical ambience.

The vineyard is cultivated exclusively according to the guidelines of integrated, near-natural viticulture, such as green manure by introducing seeds (yellow mustard, buckwheat etc.) by means of mechanical soil cultivation. The vineyards cover 40 hectares of vineyards in the old "Biiri" wine mountains with the Fabian, Goldberg, Höblisch and Hochberg vineyards, as well as Kart on the Hungarian border. They are 97% planted with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Cabernet Sauvignon, Blauburgunder(Pinot Noir) and Merlot, the small remainder with the white wine varieties Weißburgunder(Pinot Blanc) and Chardonnay.

The premium wines of the house are the red wine cuvées "Vulcano" (Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zweigelt, Merlot), which matures for 15 months in barriques, as well as "Ab Ericio", lat. "vom Igel" as homage to Hans Igler (Merlot, Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt), which matures for 21 months in barriques. Around 200,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. A bottle-fermented sparkling wine is also produced. The winery is a member of the Winegrowers' Associations Blaufränkischland Mittelburgenland and Renowned Wineries Burgenland.
