Eastern Styria's Roman Wine Road

Winegrowing in Eastern Styria has a long tradition with a 2000-year history. A 75 km archaeological trail follows Roman times through gently rolling hills, forests and vineyards. Starting in Gleisdorf, the Roman Wine Road leads through the picturesque hills of Eastern Styria via Hartberg to Bad Waltersdorf.

Annual Urbanus Presentation

On the 2nd of february the cellar doors will open again in Eastern Styria! Visit our winemakers when they present the new URBANUS® once a year at Maria Lichtmess.
On this day the first drops of the URBANUS® decide at a fire ritual in which light the wines may rest in the cellar. Enjoy the colossal resting of Eastern Styria at the 12 participating winemakers and toast with us to a colossally good wine year!
