West of St. Peter i.S., the flower capital of Europe, rises the Kühberg. From the top you have a great view to the Koralpe and the Dämmerkogl in the west. East and south you can see the border to Slovenia. The first to bring the winery to St. Peter must have been the Romans. Various regimes, such as the Limbergers and the Lichtenstein family as well as the Bishop regime Salzburg further developed the wining in our region. According to church history the church of St. Peter owned three wineries around 1760 and they had to pay taxes. An important promoter of the Styrian wining back then was Archduke Johann. He bought Stainz castle in 1840 and created a masterpiece business there. He created the opportunity for the people to learn about wining there. Another important family for the wining industry was the barrel-maker business of the Eibinger family, because where it has a lot of wine you need a lot of barrels.
Our vineyard on Kühberg consists of three different leasehold properties. In Winter 2008 we founded the ecological vineyard with a small terrain correction. We decided to plant two different types of grapes. Because of the location and the soil it was clear to me, it has to be Gelber Muskateller. As you can see now, it paid off. The first three crops developed into fantastic wines, which impress by smell and fruitiness. We decided to plant Schilcher on the second half. Therefore a soil inspection and a heat measurement was necessary but it worked well. From the first crop on we have always been able to have a late harvest wine at Kühberg.
