Wine from Western Styria
Amazing 546 hectares of vineyards in Western Styria produce an incredible variety of wines - from fine white wines to acid-affine Schilcher. The regional "Blaue Wildbacher" grapes are used for Schilcher production, but are known far beyond the national borders.
Wines from Western Styria
The figurehead, as mentioned above, is the Schilcher wine.
This light pink rosé wine, which tastes of red berries (raspberries to forest berries), is also quite acidic. The name "Schilcher" comes from the play of shimmering, shining colors he can assume. Only Schilcher from Western Styria may bear the name "Weststeiermark DAC" because only here can it develop its typical taste potential. In addition, well-known Styrian white wine varieties such as Weißburgunder, Welschriesling, Morillon and Sauvignon Blanc are also cultivated.
The vineyard area
The smallest cultivation area in Styria stretches from north to south in the form of a long, narrow strip. The Koralpe serves as a protective shield against the wind and allows the temperatures to rise considerably during the day. This creates the primarily Illyrian climate with Mediterranean but also Alpine weather influences and a lot of rain. All these influences influence the character of the wine, which means the sum of the taste, smell and color characteristics.
