Amidst beautiful verdant countryside, not far from the vineyards that used to belong to Archduke Johann, guests can look forward to cosy dining rooms, a secluded garden and gourmet cuisine that has been recommended by Gault Millau and Slow Food Styria
. Head chef Karin Rauch uses only regional products such as the asparagus and pumpkins that grow behind the house and fresh fish taken from her own ponds. Host and certified sommelier Willi Rauch selects the matching wines.
As a ‘Kulturwirtshaus’ the Rauch-Hof
hosts a varied programme featuring well-known artists and performers from all over Austria
, such as the Cooking and Reading event with renowned authors. Guests wishing to stay a little longer will sleep peacefully in the “vintner-style” rooms in two charming renovated farmhouses
with their wooden furniture and spacious bathrooms, while the new “vintner-style” room in the main building also boasts a huge roof terrace and an appealing mix of traditional and more modern furniture.
