Southbound Journey
23. – 25. May 2019

We are paid a dedicated visit to some of Austria’s best vineyards – specifically, those that lie at the borders of our country; these borders that never were borders until after 1918.

Vineyard Interfaces

The itinerary led us from the Austrian-Slovenian border in the winegrowing regions Südsteiermark and Vulkanland Steiermark via the winegrowing regions Eisenberg, Mittelburgenland and Neusiedlersee – all adjacent to Hungary – to the imposing Baroque palace Schloss Hof near the Slovakian border. Accredited specialists elucidated the historical development of each border region, while wines from our Czech, Slovakian, Hungarian and Slovenian friends accompanied us throughout the journey.
