The winery is located in the municipality of Spitz an der Donau in the wine-growing region of Wachau (Lower Austria). The family has been resident here since 1789. A hotel located in the middle of the vineyards and a wine tavern are also run. The farm is run by Karl and Elisabeth Lagler and son Karl junior. The vineyards cover 13.5 hectares in the Atzberg, Axpoint, Burgberg, Gasselreith, Hartberg, Setzberg, Steinborz, Tausendeimerberg and Vorderseiber vineyards. Around two thirds are terraced and lie on primary rock weathered soils. They are 90% planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner (40%), Riesling (25%), Gelber Muskateller, Pinot Blanc, Neuburger, Müller-Thurgau and Sauvignon Blanc, and 10% with Zweigelt.
The vines are cultivated in a natural, environmentally friendly way with reduced pruning, careful foliage management, thinning out in summer and selective manual harvesting. Fermentation is temperature-controlled in stainless steel tanks, and ageing takes place in traditional large wooden barrels or in stainless steel tanks, depending on the variety and wine quality. The premium wines of the house are "Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Steinborz", "Riesling Smaragd Steinborz", "Riesling Smaragd 1000-Eimerberg", "Grüner Veltliner Selection Elisabeth", "Riesling Federspiel von den Terrassen" and "Sauvignon Blanc Smaragd Hartberg". About 75,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Grape juice and bottle-fermented sparkling wine are also produced. The winery is a member of Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus.
