Styrian tapas with local wines by the glass - like artisanal goat cheese with dark green, nutty Styrian pumpkinseed oil with a gooseberry and elderflower scented Sauvignon Blanc from Südsteiermark – are local delicacies.  The non-oaked Chardonnay of Styria is called “Morillon” and its full-body and crisp fruit pairs perfectly with Styrian fried chicken or Tafelspitz with all the traditional condiments like creamed spinach, roasted potatoes, and apple-horseradish. Dedicated followers adore the traditional Sunday roast and let the friendly sommelier pair it with the perfect wine.  A perfect end to a perfect meal is the flavorful coffee from the Hausbrandt roaster combined with a pure fruit distillate from Gölles, and something special from the Zotter Chocolate Manufacture – all further exquisite local products from Austria’s most southern province. A visit to the adjacent delicatessen will round out this epicurean Styrian adventure. Look for the vanilla-covered pumpkin seeds, a bottle of Styrian Morillon or Sauvignon-Blanc,  or great bottle of pumpkin seed oil. Your friends at home will savor this edible souvenir.
