The winery is located in the municipality of Hadersdorf in the Lower Austrian wine growing region Kamptal. The estate is located in a former toe farm of the Passau monastery from the early 16th century, which has been the wine-growing domain of the winegrowing family since 1878. Today the estate is managed by father Josef and (after practical experience in Australia, California, Germany, New Zealand and South Africa) son Johannes Hirsch. The vineyards comprise 30 hectares of vineyards in the Gaisberg and Heiligenstein (Zöbing), as well as Grub, Lamm and Renner (Kammern). They are planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner (65%) and Riesling (35%). Certified biodynamic viticulture is practised according to the rules of the association respect-BIODYN. In the vineyard we work with a high density of vines, careful foliage care and low training to guarantee grapes with high physiological ripeness. Already since1978 only compost has been used as natural fertilizer. In 2013 the conversion to the gentle pruning according to Simonit & Sirch took place.

Hirsch Johannes: Weinflaschen - Weingarten

After the manual grape harvest in small crates, a gentle processing takes place through whole grape pressing, spontaneous fermentation, long contact on the and later bottling. The wines are vinified according to the philosophy of the house "The soil makes the wine". The product range comprises ten wines, which are matured in stainless steel tanks or in large wooden barrels according to their origin or location. These are different or Kamptal DAC Reserve Grüner Veltliner and Riesling with the above mentioned vineyard names. Since the 2002 vintage, the fruity, fresh and light Veltliner "Hirsch Trinkvergnügen" has been available with an annually changing label with a stag motif.

Already from the 2003 vintage onwards, the first winery in Austria to convert its entire production to alternative closures. Due to the frequent problems with corks, the bottling line was equipped with a screw cap of the Stelvin brand. About 180,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. An export is made to Germany, Switzerland, England, Scandinavia, Japan, Oceania and the USA. The winery is a member of the Austrian Winegrowers' Association of Traditional Wine Estates.
