The winery is located in the community of Frauenkirchen in the Burgenland DAC area of Neusiedlersee (Austria). The Franconian family has been growing 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. Most of them are located to the west and northwest of Frauenkirchen with the vineyards Hallebühl, Haideboden, Kirschgarten and Vom Stein, where the red wines are grown. Other areas are located in Neusiedl am See and in the municipality of Jois from the former property of the Count on the other side of Lake Neusiedl. The latter are up to 70% steeply terraced hillside sites in the Junger Berg and Hackelsberg vineyards, which lay fallow for a long time and have been laboriously reactivated.
