The winery is located in the municipality of Glanz a. d. Weinstraße in the Austrian wine-growing region of Southern Styria. Since the year 1682, the traditional farm and the family have been growing wine. Andreas Tscheppe sen. was one of the Styrian wine growing pioneers, among other things he introduced new educational methods and vineyard equipment suitable for steep slopes. His two sons Andreas jun. and Ewald completed their training at the Silberberg technical school for viticulture. Until 2004 the estate operated under the name "Andreas Tscheppe", now it is managed under the new name "Weingut Werlitsch" (old house name) by Ewald and Brigitte Tscheppe (Andreas Tscheppe jun. built up an independent business).
The vineyards cover nine hectares of vines near the Slovenian border in the Langegg and Unterglanzberg areas. They are planted exclusively with white wine varieties, namely Sauvignon Blanc (50%), Morillon (35%), Gelber Muskatellerand Welschriesling. They are cultivated using biodynamic methods according to the guidelines of the organic farming association DEMETER. The focus is on the different soil types, the basic rock consists of Opok (lime marl with a pH value >7).
The wines are matured as cuvées under the designation "EX VERO I, II and III", with no indication of the variety proportions. They always undergo a BSA. EX VERO stands for exposure and steepness of the site; I is the slope end with brown earth less than half a metre below the surface, II is the middle and III is the uppermost slope area, where the vines root directly in the rock just below the surface. They are usually stored in wooden barrels for two years before bottling. The second line is orange wine fermented on the mash. The winery is part of the community of values "Taste life".
