The vineyard is located in the buffer zone of the Ciężkowicki Park at an altitude of 250 meters. The slope of the east-south slope. From the north, the vineyard is protected against cold winds by Mount Kokocz (464 m above sea level). From the south, there is the Ciężkowice Foothill and the Brzanki Range, and to the east, all the way to Rymanów, the Strzyżowsko-Dynowskie Foothills.
