"storm" & chestnuts

Storm in a wineglass: "Sturm & Kastanien" in autumn

 Autumn has arrived when the South Styrian Wine Road Region is wrapped in a colourful sea of leaves, the days get shorter and you can savour the last warm rays of sunlight. At this time of the year, the chestnut roasters are open along the South Styrian Wine Road. And chestnuts go particularly well with the harbinger of the new wine vintage in this region - Sturm wine. This fermented grape juice is available in red and white varieties. The name Sturm (“storm”) reflects the cloudy nature of the drink. You’ll find that it sweetens the wonderful autumn days in Southern Styria.

typically "südsteirisch"!

The South Styrian Wine Road unites these three aspects of life. The region's customs and traditions are lively and impress visitors. Typical features such as the owner-run Buschenschank wine taverns, the Klapotetz (noisy windmills designed to keep birds off crops), the Sturm & Kastanien (Sturm wine and Chestnut) festivals in autumn, Styrian pumpkin seed oil, the unique landscape and the friendly locals make the region very special!
