The winery is located in the municipality of Gedersdorf (Brunn im Felde district) east of Krems in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Kremstal. The estate was already mentioned in the 12th century as a reading farm (Admont Abbey). The current owner family is mentioned in a document as early as 1365. The ancestor Kristof Ferstl (1808-1888) is credited with the discovery of the Neuburger grape variety because he and a fellow vintner fished out a vine floating in the Danube and planted it. Josef Mantler (1910-1987) rendered outstanding services to the selection and preservation of the Roter Veltliner grape variety. In addition to viticulture, 68 hectares of fields and meadows are farmed according to organic-biological principles. Today, the farm is run by son Josef and his wife Margit.
