The winery is located in the municipality of Gedersdorf (Brunn im Felde district) east of Krems in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Kremstal. The estate was already mentioned in the 12th century as a reading farm (Admont Abbey). The current owner family is mentioned in a document as early as 1365. The ancestor Kristof Ferstl (1808-1888) is credited with the discovery of the Neuburger grape variety because he and a fellow vintner fished out a vine floating in the Danube and planted it. Josef Mantler (1910-1987) rendered outstanding services to the selection and preservation of the Roter Veltliner grape variety. In addition to viticulture, 68 hectares of fields and meadows are farmed according to organic-biological principles. Today, the farm is run by son Josef and his wife Margit.
The vineyards cover 14 hectares of vineyards in the vineyards Mosburgerin, Spiegel, Steingraben and Wieland (classified as Erste Lagen by the association Traditionsweingüter Österreich, of which the winery is a founding member), as well as Reisenthal, Tiefenthal, Weitgasse and Zehetnerin. They are planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner (around 50%), Roter Veltliner, Riesling, Chardonnay, Neuburger and Gelber Muskateller. Fermentation is preferably done with moderate temperature control in stainless steel to preserve fruit and character. The premium wines include various Grüner Veltliners and Rieslings, including Kremstal DAC and Kremstal DAC Reserve. In years with suitable weather conditions, ice wines are also produced. Noble brandies (wine matured for years, apricots) are also produced.
