The winery is located in the municipality of Furth nächst Göttweig in the Kremstal wine-growing region of Lower Austria. After the death of her father Dr. Wolfgang Unger in 1999, the winery was taken over by Petra Unger, who studied at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Wien (specialising in viticulture) and acquired practice in a Californian winery. Since 2006, Petra Unger has devoted herself exclusively to her own vineyards (the long-standing lease of the vineyards of Göttweig Abbey was abandoned). The vineyards cover 11 hectares of vines in the Gaisberg, Gottschelle, Hinters Kirchl and Oberfeld vineyards. They are cultivated to 75% with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, and to 25% with the red wine varieties Zweigelt and Pinot Noir. The wines are produced in the three categories "Q" (fresh, light wines), "Classic" (fruity wines) and "Reserve" (full-bodied, storable wines). The premium wines include several Grüner Veltliners and Rieslings Kremstal DAC or Kremstal DAC Reserve with different vineyard designations. Around 60,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Fine spirits (fruit, wine, pomace) and bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. The winery is a member of the two winegrowers' associations 11 Frauen & ihre Weine and Traditionsweingüter Österreich.
