Wine and cosiness

From one rustic wine tavern to the next

Just like the charming southern and eastern regions of Styria are inseparably linked to winemaking, the local wine routes are inseparably linked to rustic wine taverns. During leisurely vineyard strolls, cosy “Buschenschank” wine taverns invite you to drop in and enjoy some regional delicacies.

Good to know: The region’s viniculture prospered during the regency of empress Maria Theresia and Joseph II. It was also Joseph who issued the “Buschenschank decree“ in 1784. This decree allowed small, part-time wine producers to earn something on the side. The positive side effect: The measures not only benefitted the local economy but also the social life in the region’s villages.

Top-class wine taverns

The wine taverns in Styria’s wine-growing regions are a class of their own. This is proven by the “Ausgezeichnete Buschenschank” (excellent wine tavern) quality seal that underlines the quality of the products served there. Restaurants carrying this quality seal are recognisable by the burgundy rectangular “Ausgezeichnete Buschenschank” logo with white writing.

What guests can expect at these taverns: excellent quality and a vast selection of regional wines and other products. Glass culture, ambiance and the excellent quality and verifiable origin of all ingredients are important aspects at these top-class taverns.

At a wine tavern carrying the quality seal, guests can be sure that they are only served wine from the tavern’s own production and snack specialties made by the vintner family or local producers.

  • Any meat served at these wine taverns is processed on site or supplied by a direct marketer.
  • Fish exclusively comes from Styrian waters.
  • The tavern serves at least 4 Austrian cheeses and 3 types of home-made fruit juices.

By the way: All certified wine taverns also put big smiles on little faces, offering child-friendly snacks and boasting spacious playgrounds.
