Take a trip to the southern Austrian state of Styria and discover countless wine oases. Many wineries offer visitors surprisingly chic tasting rooms. Sauvignon Blanc, the region's signature grape, is often harvested on impossibly steep slopes of slippery schist and shale soils.

The wine growing region of Styria produces a brilliantly fresh and elegant style of wines. The three Styrian wine-growing regions all offer their own local specialty, and are located in the south of Styria.

To the west, the spicy Schilcher Rosé dominates, a variety that truly expresses its terroir. In the Sausal region and along the South Styrian Wine Road, the aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and the Gelber Muskateller varieties reign. Once in the glass, Styrian Sauvignon entices with scents of just-ripe red currant, white pepper and lime. Pair a Styrian Sauvignon Blanc with a plate of charcuterie on the veranda of a Buschenschank (rural wine tavern) and absorb the seductive, sensory delights of southern Austria
The Vulkanland (locaed in the south-east of Styria) is named for its remains of volanic activity, and the trio of aromatic varieties is rounded off with Traminer, a real treat for connoisseurs.
