The traditional winery is located in the municipality of Jois in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). After long years of apprenticeship and travel in Europe and overseas (South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, California), Leo Hillinger (* 1967) took over the management of his parents' winery in 1990. At that time, the estate comprised only one hectare of vineyards with a wine shop. Leo Hillinger carried out major structural reforms. At a cost of six million euros, a new production facility with state-of-the-art cellar technology, a tasting room and a seminar room were built and put into operation in May 2004. The production hall is one of the most modern wine-growing facilities in Europe. Wine seminars, wine cellar tours, wine tastings and vineyard picnics are organised. In Parndorf, a "flagship store" was opened in the Designer Outlet in 2005, exclusively marketing the company's own wines. In the period from 2011 to 2016, Austria and Germany were followed by further stores/lounges/bars in Salzburg, Wien (2), Kitzbühel, Linz and Munich. In 2008, a social project was started with the own label "Pink Ribbon" (a Secco sparkling wine) in favour of the Austrian Cancer Aid. The company is owned 100% by the Hillinger family.
