South Styria

The Sausal. The Origin.

The Sausal region, which stretches around the South-Styrian village of Kitzeck, ranks among Austria’s most historical winegrowing areas. The vineyards are planted at altitudes of 380 to 650 meters above sea level. With an average steepness of up to 80%, they belong to Europe’s steepest vineyard sites. 


The Estate’s most important single-vineyard sites – Altenberg, Edelschuh, Gola, Sausaler Schlössl, Einöd and Steinriegel – have already been rated among Styria’s premium single vineyards since the 14th century.
