If you like things a bit more rustic, then Styria, with its unique hilly landscape and historic cellars, is our tip for your next holiday. You’ll find one of the oldest wine cellars in Europe in the Styrian castle, Schloss Seggau. At 300 years old, 72 metres long and eight-and-a-half metres high, it’s definitely worth exploring on a tour.
Vienna is the only capital city in the world that can boast its own wine industry. Wine was grown within the city walls until late in the Middle Ages. Today, 637 vineyards still play an important role economically, but the emphasis nowadays is on wineries in the suburbs and outskirts of the city. Grüner Veltliner, Rhine Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Welschriesling are the most commonly grown grape varieties in the capital.
