The winery is located in the municipality of Welgersdorf in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Eisenberg (Austria). Uwe Schiefer worked in gastronomy as a waiter and sommelier in renowned Viennese restaurants, including the Steirereck. After attending the Austrian Wine Academy in Rust, he founded his own winery in 1990. His motto is "The wine defines itself in the vineyard, without exception". In accordance with the farm's philosophy "less is more", virtually no technology is used in the vineyard and during vinification in order to bring out the character of the terroir and the grape variety.

The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vineyards in the Fasching, Hummergraben, Kroatische Ried, Reihburg, Saybritz, Szapary and Zudelgraben vineyards on the Eisenberg, on the Tschaterberg (south-western spur of the Eisenberg), Königsberg and Hannersberg (Hannersdorf) as well as in the municipality of Markt Neuhodis. There are further vineyards in the wine-growing areas of Mittelburgenland (4.5 hectares in Lutzmannsburg) and Leithaberg. Some of these partly ancient steep slopes were painstakingly recultivated. The main variety is Blaufränkisch with 92%. The rest is planted with Merlot and Pinot Noir, as well as the white wine varieties Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and Riesling. The vineyards are cultivated in an environmentally friendly, organic way. Special attention is paid to the optimal timing of pruning, thinning and harvesting.
