The estate is located in the municipality of Glanz in the Austrian wine region südsteiermark
at the highest point of the Langeggerberg. It was completely rebuilt by Andreas Tscheppe in 2006 (his brother Ewald Tscheppe owns the winery Werlitsch
). The new vineyards were created on terraces and cover four hectares of vineyards. They are planted with the white varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Morillon, Welschriesling, Gelber Muskateller and Goldmuskateller, as well as with Pinot Noir. On all vineyards Biodynamic viticulture
operated. The work in the vineyard takes into account the moon phases
to include the effects of the moon on water and therefore also on plants. Mighty vines with deep roots are sought because they reach deeper layers of the soil.
The vinification takes place in the basement of the nearby family home. The wines are produced in two different lines. The classic "at line" is expanded in steel tanks. The second line includes the puristic wines. These will fermented spontaneously
and mature only in wooden barrels. There were separate labels for each line, whereby images of domestic animals such as salamanders, dragonflies and stag beetles are used for the individual types. The so-called "Erdfass wines" are a specialty. For this, selected grapes are fermented spontaneously. After 14 days of mash fermentation, it is transferred to a wooden barrel in which the remaining fermentation and biological acid degradation take place. Then the barrel is buried in the ground over the winter months. As a result, the strong underground energy, particularly in the winter months, is to be used for wine maturation. Grape juice, seed oil and pomace brandy are also produced.
