The winery is located in the municipality of Reichersdorf in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Traisental. It has been family-owned since 1778. The winery is rich in tradition and is now run by Markus Huber, the tenth generation to do so, after years of practice in South Africa (Kaapzicht, Lammershoek, Spice Route), in Alsace and at some of Austria's top wineries (Bründlmayer Willi, Jurtschitsch). A Heuriger is attached. The vineyards cover 40 hectares of vineyards on limestone conglomerate soils partly covered with loess layers in the vineyards Alte Setzen, Berg, Engelsberg, Hochschopf, Obere Steigen, Rothenbart and Zwirch. They are 95% planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner (with two thirds of the total area), Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Müller-Thurgau, Gelber Muskateller and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as the red wine variety Zweigelt. Grapes are also purchased from contract winegrowers.
The vineyards are cultivated according to the certified rules of organic viticulture and IFS criteria. The entire winery is certified according to Sustainable Austria (Nachhaltig Austria) production rules. Only physiologically ripe and healthy grapes are processed through selective hand-picking. Depending on the type of soil and the grapes, the wines are matured in stainless steel tanks or in large wooden barrels. The Natural Wine "Metamorphosis" (Grüner Veltliner) matures for 12 months in concrete eggs (right picture of the cellar). The main goal is to reflect the terroir characteristics of the site and the vintage in the wines in an unadulterated way. The main variety Grüner Veltliner is vinified in various styles as Traisental DAC and Traisental DAC Reserve. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines, noble brandies and, in years with suitable weather conditions, Trockenbeerenauslese wines are also produced. The wines are exported to 35 countries worldwide. The winery is a member of Vereinigung Traisentaler Weingärtner (chairman Markus Huber) and Traditionsweingüter Österreich.
