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 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.
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.
In the Steiermark, many wines are produced by means of endless manual procedures in very small parcels.
Es gibt viele kleine Rieden, die oft nur von einem Winzer kultiviert werden. Individuell sind schließlich auch die Weine selbst, wenn die Winzer dann ihre Arbeit einmal getan haben.
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.
