The Styrians have recently made an international name for themselves with their light, dry wines. No other wine region in Europe cultivates so many types of wine. These wines have special character: fruity like ripe grapes, fragrant due to low alcohol content and dry without overpowering sweetness.
Behind the name "Steirischer Junker" is a brand of wine from Styria. More than 300 winegrowers have been producing this young wine every autumn since 1995. These winemakers follow the strict quality criteria of the Styrian wine market community, an umbrella group of a marketing organization in which all significant winemaking companies are voluntary members.
More than 60 winemakers in southeast Styria founded this association to further the development of the winegrowing region. Its focus is on increasing quality, sustainability in relation to nature, exchanging knowledge and experience among winemakers and developing an independent profile of the winegrowing region.
79 municipalities form the Styrian volcanic region in southeastern Austria. This unique cooperation is the bearer of a grand vision. What began in the small region of Feldbach is now a region on the rise to uniqueness. The volcanic region is the winner of the European Village Renewal Prize. Widespread civic involvement and a special quality of life characterise this region shaped by volcanoes.
