The renowned winery in the municipality of Rohrendorf near Krems in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Kremstal is one of the oldest and largest in Austria. In 1040, Emperor Heinrich III. (1017-1056) donated vineyards and the associated cellar in the present-day wine-growing municipality of Rohrendorf to the Ebersberg Abbey of the Order of Benedictines in Bavaria. However, parts of the estate cellar were already dug into the mighty loess terraces between 970 and 980. A "Moser" appears for the first time in 1124 as administrator of the Ebersberg monastery; he is an ancestor of the Moser family, which can be traced without interruption since the 16th century. After several changes of ownership and the abolition of serfdom, in 1849 Anton Moser became the owner of the vineyards and the cellar in Rohrendorf, which was then called the Zehentkeller and has remained the ancestral home to this day. In 1880 Laurenz Moser I took over the cellar in Rohrendorf and expanded the vineyard areas.
