The beginning was set by Anton Iby I. at the beginning of the 20th century. From 1955 Anton Iby III began to increase the area under vines to 5.5 hectares.

From 2000 onwards, son Ing. Anton Iby V., as oenologist and cellar master, took over the sole responsibility for vinification and development of the wines.

They are 100% planted with red wine varieties, these are Blaufränkisch (80%), Zweigelt and Merlot. The cultivation is carried out according to certified rules of organic viticulture.
