The traditional winery is located in the municipality of Kitzeck im Sausal in the Austrian wine growing region of Southern Styria. The roots reach back to the year 1757. The foundation stone was laid by Karl Schauer. Today, the business is run by the sons Stefan and Bernhard Schauer in the 23rd generation of the family. Some of the vineyards are located in extremely steep vineyards, which can only be cultivated by hand. The longest family-owned vineyard is 12 hectares in the Gaisriegl reed, which is one of the most important of the farm. Here the site wines from Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling with mineral aromas grow. The Gaisriegl is also home to the winery including the Buschenschank and guest house. There are further areas in the vineyards Einöd, Goldes (Sauvignon Blanc), Mellacher (Sauvignon Blanc), Hinteregg, Höchtemmel (Pinot Blanc) and Kittenberg.
