Good for the heart
Practising viticulture in the Styrian vineyards means that the winegrowers and their employees have less need of working out at a fitness centre. And they are wholeheartedly dedicated to their work. But in between they always find time, as warm hosts, to welcome all travellers and winelovers who want to experience the charms of Styrian wines in their natural habitat.
Individuality at every touch,
on every hillside, in every cask
Individuality at every move, on every slope, in every barrel. The wines of the Steiermark are as unique and distinctive as the Styrians themselves, who are sometimes considered to be hardheaded (but of course in a charming way). And it is frequently said that their wives are the most beautiful women in Austria. But that has nothing to do with the wine.
In the Steiermark no two vineyards are identical
Every winegrower needs a special wealth of experience, but also basic knowledge and a great deal of intuition. A sense for his or her terroir, for passion and for homeland. Each must figure out individually how the character of the site is reflected to optimum effect in the wine, what makes it unique and how this is best accentuated in the cellar.
The little details make the difference,
in both wine and life
Small parcels, great wines
In the Steiermark, many wines are produced by means of endless manual procedures in very small parcels.
A few estates might share a vineyard
There are many small vineyards, which are often cultivated by a single winegrower. After all, the wines themselves are also individuals, if the grower has done their job properly.
Goes great with...
Styrian wines are often fresh and fruity, ideal accompaniments to a light summer meal or a plate of cold cuts. But then again they can be profound, full of exotic aromas, with considerable potential for cellaring.
