The rich soils, the mild Mediterranean climate, the unique sites and the skilled art of vinification give the wines of southern Styria their famous, rich aromas. The vines are still harvested by hand for the most part as machines are no longer permitted on the steep slopes. The result is truly a product that is second to none.
The wide range of varieties, with Sauvignon Blanc and Schilcher as the leading varieties, through to Pinot Blanc, Welschriesling, Morillon, Traminer, Muskateller, Riesling and Zweigelt, make the heart of every wine connoisseur beat faster. The wine in southern Styria goes hand in hand with its culinary delights, hospitality, landscape and culture, and becomes an unforgettable adventure for indulgence seekers and nature lovers.
Here the winemaker still takes time to personally greet their guests and guide them through the winery or vineyard. They let them look over their shoulder and answers any questions. There is laughter, tasting, philosophising and interpretation. The flavours and aromas are discussed and the colour and finish analysed. You can't get any closer to the wine!
„In vino veritas - in wine, there is truth.“
The number of wineries that have accumulated throughout southern Styria is extensive. From small vineyards to large-scale wineries, they have all devoted themselves to the grapes of southern Styria and its processing. The wines labelled with the names of well-known winegrowers who have been passing on their knowledge of wine to their descendants for generations. Wine knowledge is also shared with visitors, who are welcomed with open arms and are not only allowed to admire the impressive, often modern in design wineries, but also to immerse themselves in the world of wine.
