The winery "Nepomukhof - Familie Graßl" is located in the municipality of Göttlesbrunn in the Lower Austrian wine region of Carnuntum. The farm is named after Saint Nepomuk and refers to the donation of a Nepomuk statue by the village judge of that time in 1740. The still preserved part of this statue is exhibited in the farm. An old vaulted cellar from the Turkish period, where most of the wine is still stored, dates from around this time. The family's attachment to wine can be seen in the saying: "But where wine is lacking, the charm of life dies" (Euripides 480-407 BC). The winery is managed by Ing. Christian Graßl and his wife Maria

The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vines. They are planted with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, and the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling, Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Frühroter Veltliner and Gelber Muskateller. Depending on the desired style, the wines are aged in steel tanks, large wooden barrels or barriques. Premium wines are Grüner Veltliner Selektion, Rubin Carnuntum, Merlot, Cuvée Nepomuk (Zweigelt, Merlot, Blaufränkisch) and Exor Zweigelt Reserve. Maria Graßl is a member of the winegrowers' association "Carnuntum-Katzen".
