The cooperative winery is located in the municipality of Klausen (Chiusa) in the Eisack Valley in the Italian wine-growing region of South Tyrol ( Trentino-South Tyrol region). It was founded in 1961 by 24 members at the time. The foundation stone was laid in the historic cellar of the Reinthalerhof.
