The traditional winery is located in the municipality of Gumpoldskirchen in the wine-growing region of Thermenregion (Lower Austria). It is one of the oldest wineries in Austria. Shortly before his death, Margrave Leopold IV (1108-1141) - son of Leopold III the Saint - made a donation. He solemnly gave the village of Thallern, which was inhabited by fourteen families at the time, to the Cistercians of Heiligenkreuz Abbey "for all time". The property comprised six hectares (Huben), eight and a half vineyards and four farmsteads. The village name can be traced back to the word valley (the estate lies in a gentle hollow).

I have great respect for the scope and quality of the wein.plus encyclopaedia. It is a unique place to go for crisp, sound information on terms from the world of wine.
