In autumn, it gets stormy in southern Styria. But don't worry, we don't mean the weather; it still shows its best side towards the end of the year. But when the Sturm (must) arises from the most precious commodity of Southern Styria, the grapes, the chestnut fryers are also never far away.
Along the wine trails are numerous stalls preparing delicious chestnuts, freshly roasted and served in a newspaper cone, accompanied by a good glass of red, white or Schilcher Sturm. From the beginning of September to the end of October, depending on the time of the grape harvest, the sweet Sturm moves into the country and you can enjoy the delicious drink to the full. Accompanied by a bag of still hot chestnuts; this is probably the best way to taste autumn in southern Styria.
Anyone travelling along the three wine trails in autumn will immediately be hit by the tantalising aroma of freshly roasted chestnuts. Freshly roasted, served in a newspaper cone and accompanied by a refreshing glass of Sturm - this is how to enjoy the southern Styrian autumn to the fullest.
