The winery is located in the municipality of Frauenkirchen in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). The family, which comes from Franconia, has been making wine since 1755, when their ancestors immigrated to what is now Burgenland. Josef "Pepi" Umathum has been considered a cult figure, doyen and winemaker philosopher within the Austrian wine scene for more than twenty years. The vineyards cover 40 hectares of vines in three locations. The majority is located to the west and northwest of Frauenkirchen with the Hallebühl, Haideboden, Kirschgarten and Vom Stein vineyards, where the red wines grow. Further areas are located in Neusiedl am See and in the municipality of Jois from former property of the count on the other shore of Lake Neusiedl. The latter are up to 70% steeply terraced slopes in the Junger Berg and Hackelsberg vineyards, which lay fallow for a long time and were reactivated in painstaking work.
