The small Styrian vineyards offer an astonishing variety. Our aim is to discover and collect the most precious of these rare wines for our friends and guests. We keep close friendly contact with the best winegrowers, so, time and again, we can load our cellar with their finest, rarest wines.
Good wine is like a friendship, those ripened the longest are the most harmonious. In co-operation with Christian Jauk (a local vintner), we produce a series of wines called Die Freundschaft – friendship – which we enjoy at Hotel Berghof.
Hoch vom Dachstein an, wo der Aar noch haust bis ins Rebenland (from the Dachstein, where the eagle lives, to the vine land) is the first line of the Styrian anthem.

Joining the wine brotherhood and sisterhood. An application for admission, supported by a warrantor, is considered by the brother or sister council. At the acceptance ceremony, the new member vows to support wine culture to their best ability and introduce the art of enjoying wine; he or she takes a symbolic sip from our cup, signs the brother or sisterhood book, then gets a brotherhood or sisterhood pin.
