Around the year 1800, besides the production of wines, a commercial activity was mentioned. The vineyards cover around 50 hectares of vineyards on several family-owned wineries between St. Magdalena and Lake Kaltern.

The wines are produced or marketed in the three lines Classic, Höfe and Meister. The product range includes various wines from the DOC range Kalterersee. St. Magdalener. South Tyrol and Terlaner, as well as IGT wines (country wines).

Around a million bottles of wine are produced annually, 75% of which is exported to Germany and Austria in particular. The company is a member of the association "Die Weingut Südtirols".
