The manifested, Romanesque habitus, which has partly taken on very funny forms, finds its balance in the sometimes harsh or rough East Styrian charm and in the slow leisureliness of East Styrian hill country life. Resting and resting are the epitome of the worldly attitude to life in eastern Styria.
Customs, traditions and also behavior from the Roman Empire migrated with the Romans to their East Styrian retirement home and influenced the attitude to life of today's East Styrians. However, the fall of the Roman Empire was not the end of Roman culture.
Viticulture and habitus rested here for thousands of years, were rediscovered and handed down. The Roman habitus of the East Styrian can be recognized in the pronounced love of order, the tremendous joy of discussion, the sometimes philosophical, the often combative, the rage-filled raving and the orgiastic mood of celebration.
The balance of the East Styrian attitude towards life is shown in short films of KOLOSSALEM AUSRASTEN. The people of a large winegrowing family, portrayed by the winegrowers of the East Styrian Roman Wine Route and friends, depict endearing weaknesses and their strength: in tranquility lies strength.
Humorous exaggerations of typical behavior of the East Styrians show the viewer human weaknesses in balance with the serenity as a solution. The attitude towards life on the East Styrian Roman Wine Road is reflected in the sociable way of not taking life too seriously, enjoying and celebrating together.
Risk with us a look behind the facades of the East Styrian wineries and look the winemaker families in their East Styrian soul.
