The winery is located in the southern part of the Kremstal wine region in the picturesque village of Krustetten. The estate was first mentioned in the archive of nearby Göttweig Abbey as early as 1270 a.d. as a Lesehof which translated means “wine press house” and has been run as a family business by the Müller family since 1936.
In 1936, grandfather Leopold Müller acquired a small vineyard in Krustetten and made the first Müller wine. Nowadays, the 3rd and 4th generation of Müllers is managing the estate, which now encompasses a proud 120 hectares of prime vineyards. The grandsons Leopold and Stefan, together with the entire Müller family, relentlessly work to ensure the best possible quality wines.

Each family member is involved in the winery and all tasks are well distributed! Stefan cultivates the vineyards surrounding the Göttweiger Berg with great passion and Leopold takes over responsibility from grape picking to bottling. Leopold also enjoys being with his customers and handles all their concerns, whereby he is already actively supported by his two eldest, Diana and Martin! Martha manages the figures behind the scenes and gets office assistance from her youngest, Therese, who is happy to help with everything from folding letters to organizing them.
In contrast, Laurenz feels comfortable outdoors in the vineyards and can be found more and more often at a tractor in the afternoons! Verena not only looks after the two youngest members of the family, Fernanda & Josefina, but also does the decoration at the winery. Furthermore, she prepares all the homemade delicacies with Gertrude in the wine tavern (Heurigen) and the cellar door sale. Leopold senior is always ready to lend a hand if the need is there. The circle closes with the young team at the winery, which is actively supporting the family!
