One of the three specific wine-growing areas in the Austrian province or generic wine-growing region of Styria. The history of viticulture dates back to the fourth century BC. In the Monarchy, towards the end of the 19th century, there were still 35,000 hectares of vineyards in what was then called Lower Styria - about 15 times the amount today. At that time, however, areas that today lie in Slovenia were included. The Habsburg Archduke Johann (1782-1859) set the course for Styrian quality viticulture by founding an experimental vineyard near Marburg. At that time, Pinot Blanc from the Jerusalem vineyard, which is now in...

The province of Styria with its capital Graz is located in the south-east of Austria. It borders the provinces of Carinthia (SW), Salzburg (W), Upper Austria (N), Lower Austria (N) and Burgenland (E), as well as Slovenia in the south. The Celts practised cultivated viticulture as early as the fourth century BC. As in all of Central Europe, Emperor Charlemagne (742-814) gave new impetus to viticulture. In the Middle Ages, the Roman Catholic Church and its monasteries, especially Rein Abbey of the ZisterzienserCistercian...

The lifting of the ban on planting vines outside Italy by Emperor Domitian (51-96) by Emperor Probus (232-282) had a positive effect on viticulture. This...

The white grape variety originates from France. Although it has slight morphological differences in leaves and shoots compared to Chardonnay, it has an identical DNA profile. Morillon can be described as a variety or clone of Chardonnay. In Austrian Styria, Chardonnay is traditionally referred to as Morillon and is still partly regarded as independent there. However, both designations are also used by some producers in order to document a difference, if necessary, to a qualitatively "better" wine then designated as Chardonnay. In the other Austrian provinces, however, the name...
