The Prager-Bodenstein winery is located in Weißenkirchen in the Lower Austrian wine growing region of Wachau. The family has been growing wine for many generations. The estate, then belonging to the Michaelbeuern monastery, was first mentioned in 1302 as "Haus am Chling". In a letter of inheritance from 1715, which is kept in the family archives, three vineyards in the Hinter der Burg, Leber and Ritzling vineyards are mentioned, which are still owned by the family today. Franz Prager (1925-2019) is regarded as a viticulture pioneer and was the first chairman of the Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus winegrowers' association from 1983 to 1988. He played a decisive role in shaping the viticultural fortunes of the Wachau. His son-in-law Toni Bodenstein and his wife Ilse have been responsible for the business since the early 1990s. The company motto is: "The wine must be a reflection of the location". In this context Toni Bodenstein is also referred to as the "Terroirist of the Wachau".

The vineyards comprise 15 hectares of vines, most of which are located on extreme terraces. They are located in the municipalities of Dürnstein (Hollerin, Kaiserberg, Liebenberg) and Weißenkirchen (Achleiten, Hinter der Burg, Klaus, Steinriegl, Weitenberg, Zwerithaler). They are exclusively planted with the white wine varieties Riesling (70%) and Grüner Veltliner (30%). Among the premium wines are Riesling Smaragd Wachstum Bodenstein and Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Achleiten from very old vines. The work in the vineyard and cellar is done in the traditional way. Essential quality criteria are working with autochthonous yeast and renouncing the use of enzymes. The fermentation and ageing are carried out in stainless steel tanks. The bottles are exclusively sealed with natural corks. The winery is a member of Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus
