The wines

The three-part pyramid of origin illustrates the range philosophy of our winery. The regional wines form the solid, fresh-fruity basis. The local and site wines rest on it and represent the conditions of their location in a precious way.

South Styrian regional wines The regional wines (among them the wines of the "Steirische Klassik") represent the enormous variety of grape varieties of the region and, thanks to their young, fresh and fruity style, are considered ambassadors of the wine culture of southern Styria.

Local wines The climate and geological peculiarities of a wine-growing village result in wines with character. Whether it is the Gamlitz sandy soil or the lime-rich Ratscher Kessel - the conditions shape the taste. Wines of the same grape variety develop completely different bouquets and flavors depending on their origin. Local wines mature for at least eight months in the cellar and have considerable storage potential.

Site wines Our premium wines come from vineyards with excellent soils and a particularly favorable microclimate. Strict criteria apply to the quality of the vineyards as well as to the aging period of the wines in the cellar. Rieden wines tell of their origin - the terroir of that small vineyard where they were harvested. Their aging potential is enormous, but we can only vinify them in small quantities.

Our vineyards -Ried Nussberg (Great STK site) -Vineyard Perz (First STK site) -Vineyard Sulz (First STK site) -Vineyard Kittenberg (First STK site) -Witscheiner Herrenberg Štajerska Slovenija About one fifth of the vineyards we cultivate are located in the charming landscape of Štajerska Slovenija, in the wine-growing village of Gorca near Ptuj. The vines, painstakingly tended by hand, grow exclusively on terraces on extremely steep slopes. Like southern Styria,

Štajerska Slovenija enjoys excellent climatic conditions and excellent, stony-karsty soils that are consistently rich in limestone. We would like to breathe new life into this traditional wine-growing region and help it to regain its international reputation.

Jakobi The label of the elegantly spicy Sauvignon Blanc uses symbols from the Old Farmer's Calendar to tell of formative events and the weather patterns of the wine year in which it matured.

Visits to the winery We write hospitality BIG. The doors of our winery are wide open. Wine lovers can visit our vineyards and cellar, taste wines and purchase them at farm-gate prices. We look forward to your visit to us at the Nussberg!
