The family winery is situated on a small mountain plateau above the Zieregg reed in the Austrian wine-growing region of Southern Styria. From here, a panoramic view is possible, which extends as far as the neighbouring country of Slovenia and southern Eastern Styria. In 1976, at the age of 16, Manfred Tement took over the then only 2.5 hectare farm and expanded it to its current size. In 2002, the wine cellar above the Zieregg vineyard was opened after a three-year construction period. It was built into a former coral reef that was created 20 million years ago. The vineyards of the family business comprise around 80 hectares of vineyards in the locations Grassnitzberg, Hochkittenberg, Ottenberg, Sernauberg, Steinbach, Sulz, Wielitsch and Zieregg (in the picture). The latter extends to the Slovenian region, where for some years now also areas have been cultivated. 95% of the white wine varieties Sauvignon Blanc (40% of the total area), Welschriesling,Pinot Blanc, Morillon (Chardonnay), Gelber Muskateller and Gewürztraminer, the small remainder with the red wine varieties Zweigelt and Cabernet Sauvignon are cultivated.
