Comprising around 2,200 hectares of vineyards, the South Styrian Wine Land is the region’s largest and probably best-known winegrowing area. Some 950 vintners lovingly attend to the vines, usually by hand. After all, mechanical harvesting is frequently impossible due to the steepness of the slopes (up to 26% gradient).

The main towns in the wine country are Gamlitz, Leutschach and Kitzeck – the highest vineyard community in Austria. Poplars and chestnut trees exude a southern flair, while the klopotecs – a kind of windmill used to scare the birds – are absolutely typical of the region.

The mild climate and the rocky, south-facing slopes create ideal conditions for superb qualities – Sauvignon Blanc, Welschriesling, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay/Morillon are the dominant varieties here.
