Weingut Polz

The family vineyard of Erich Polz is situated in an idyllic field in the middle of hilly Southern Styria, about an hour’s drive south of Graz. The business was originally founded in 1912. In the late 1980s, the brothers took over their parents’ vineyard. Christoph Polz, Erich’s son, became the fourth generation to assume the role of winemaker in 2011.

The Polz vineyards are situated in one of the best winegrowing regions of Southern Styria around the Grassnitzberg where the Illyrian climate prevails. The area is characterised by a special harmony of Alpine, Pannonian and Mediterranean climates. As a result, the wine grown here is of the finest quality. The geological composition of the soil, many hours of sunshine and well-distributed rainfall offer almost perfect conditions for viticulture.

The Polz family produce white grape varieties on more than 90% of their 70 hectares, with Sauvignon Blanc being the predominant grape variety. Furthermore, Chardonnay (known as Morillon in this region), Welschriesling, Pinot Blanc and Yellow Muscat thrive here. All grapes are carefully harvested by hand and reflect the great passion and competence of the winery.

The DAC wines present themselves as very aromatic, fruity and clear. They are left to mature in stainless steel and are therefore particularly typical of their variety and vintage. The single vineyard wines such as Hochgrassnitzberg exhibit a unique character and independence and have an ageing potential of up to 15 years. The Hochgrassnitzberg vineyard is generally regarded as one of the best in all of Southern Styria. Most of the vineyards lie on extinct volcanoes. As a result, the Toscana-like landscape is characterised by basalt soils with marl, schist and shell limestone.

When wandering through the beautiful vineyards, you may be startled to hear a loud rattling. That’s the Klapotetz! It’s a small Styrian type of windmill that scares away starlings and other pests. A trip to the region is a must for white wine lovers. Don’t forget to visit one of the cosy Buschenschänke (wine taverns) and try the typical dishes such as beetle bean salad with pumpkin seed oil. The Polz family have their very own wine tavern, where you can sample their delicious wines.

Château Biac

Château Biac

Sometimes life is full of surprises. The Lebanese Asseily family experienced this first-hand when they became the owners of Château Biac as if by accident in 2006. They regularly spent their summer holidays near Biac, but never would they have dreamt that they would own and manage this wonderful property themselves one day. It’s a fascinating story that Tony and Youmna Asseily are happy to share over a glass of their wine.

Villa Caviciana

When, in the early morning, the sun slowly rises over the glittering mirror-smooth water of the Bolsena Lake, and the first blaring of the sheep, the quiet meowing of the domestic cat and the cheerful chirping of birds break the peaceful silence, then one understands that some people have found here their paradise on earth. Away from the big mass tourism of the coast, only an hour's drive away, in still largely intact nature, the lake spreads out in the charming hilly landscape, sometimes calm, sometimes foaming up, wild like the sea.
