The winery is located in the municipality of Gols in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). It is managed by Gernot and Heike Heinrich. The vineyards cover about 90 hectares of vines and are located on both sides of Lake Neusiedl. This is on both the west side in the cool slopes on the Leithaberg with the most important sites Alter Berg in Winden (limestone) and Edelgraben in Breitenbrunn (slate), and in the warmer, south-facing sites around Gols such as Gabarinza and Salzberg with sandy loam soils and lots of sun. The main focus is on the red wine varieties Blaufränkisch (the lead variety), Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Pinot Noir and Merlot. The most important white wine varieties in the Leithagebirge are Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Traminer and Muskat Ottonel.
