The estate is located in the municipality Kleinhöflein a few kilometers east of Retz
in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Weinviertel
, The origin dates back to 1958, when Elisabeth and Viktor Pollak handed over the then farm to Herbert Toifl. After training at the HBLA for viticulture and fruit growing in Klosterneuburg
and practical experience in the wine farms Erich & Walter Polz
(Südsteiermark) Castle Johannisberg
(South Tyrol) and Geyerhof
(Kremstal), it has been run by the grandson Georg Toifl since the harvest 2009 in the fourth generation of the family.
The vineyards cover over ten hectares of vineyards in the vineyards Berghangen, Schatzberg, Seeleiten, Siebzehnlehen and Wolfsthal on the layer plateau around Retz, as well as on the slopes of Buchberg in Obritz (Pulkautal). They are 60% with the white varieties Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, seedling 88, yellow Muscat and Riesling, and planted to 40% with the red varieties Zweigelt, St. Laurent and Pinot Noir. There is a close to nature management from the point of view of sustainability
(a conversion to organic viticulture is planned). The special relationship to the variety St. Laurent was from the father Herbert Toifl (1993-2005 led the winery Stift Klosterneuburg
) passed on to son George. The grape harvest is always included regardless of the line physiological maturity
of the grapes.
The quality pyramid includes the baseline "G" and the line "GEO" (both with ), in which the white wines in stainless steel and the red wines in predominantly new large wooden barrels are primarily fruit grown, and as a tip the individually developed single-layer wines "GE.ORG" from vintage highly physiologically mature grapes, therefore, the reading can drag into here until November , The winery specializes in Burgundy varieties, which are also among the premium wines. The flagships of the house are "Riesling Siebzehnlehen" (extremely cold fermentation and long yeast storage in stainless steel), "Grüner Veltliner Wolfsthal" (long yeast store in wooden barrels) and "Sankt Laurent Wolfsthal" (aging in oak barrels). There are also produced brandies.
