Apart from the vines, Winkler-Hermaden Winery manages fruit orchards, forests, and many sheep. Georg and Margot Winkler-Hermaden own the estate and run it with the help of their ten family members. Georg inherited the castle from his father in 1977 and together with Margot, set up the winery in 1986.

All Work is Done by Hand Using Organic Methods to Protect the Surrounding Environment and their Vineyards

The region has adequate rainfall and good soils that are perfect for the cultivation of vines. Their vineyards are present in many locations, including Schlosskogel, Rosenleiten, and Kirchleiten. Workers at Winkler-Hermaden do all work by hand and use organic methods to protect the surrounding environment and their vines. The main types of grapes that grow are Sauvignon Blanc, Muscaris, Welschriesling, Weißburgunder, Grauburgunder, Traminer, Blauer Zweigelt, Merlot, and Pinot Noir. The winery produces world-class red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert Austrian wines.
