The winery is located in the municipality of Sarasdorf near Stixneusiedl in the Carnuntum wine-growing region of Lower Austria. After an internship in California, Johannes Trapl took over the family business in 2000. The vineyards cover 18 hectares in the Kirchberg and Spitzerberg vineyards. They are 70% planted with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, St. Laurent, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and 30% with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling and Weißburgunder (Pinot Blanc). The vineyards are cultivated according to the guidelines of biodynamic viticulture, which have been certified since 2016. The focus is on plant growth with sensitive foliage care, cover crop, as well as fertilisation with compost while dispensing with mineral fertilisers. The slower ripening of the grapes is intended to develop more intense aromas. The selective harvest takes place in two rounds with the aim of physiologically ripe grapes.

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
