Nature at Your Feet

Sausal Wine Route

Discover the Sausal Wine Route and the many wine taverns with all their culinary delights. Here in the Sausal, wine sets the pace. The Sausal Wine Road winds through the steepest vineyards in Styria. All the good wines are connected with the history of the earth, as the soil here is shaped by slate and primary rock that is around 60 million years old. This can be felt in the high quality of the Sausal grape juices. Like the Riesling, for example, which thrives here in unique quality.


The Wine-making Tradition

Experience tradition up close at the wine festivals in the region or help out with the grape harvest yourself. A special tip is the “Maiglaggln” every May 1 – a culinary “Kellergassenfest” at Demmerkogel (about 10 km away). Or a wine tasting and castle tour at Seggau Castle (11.5 km away).

Wine-growing villages in the surrounding area:
