Austrian Wine Regions > Styria (Steiermark)

Südsteiermark (South Styria), near the Slovenian border, is mainly Sauvignon Blanc country – however, the 1,950 hectares of vineyards also include Welschriesling, Morillon, Muskateller and Traminer. Soil types include sandstone, shale, clay and shelly limestone. The combination of warm days and cool nights gives a long growing season, resulting in crisp, aromatic and full-bodied wines. The warm humid climate and steep hills make this one of the toughest places in Austria to be a vigneron.
