Seggau Castle in southern Styria (Austria) is not only an international congress, conference and seminar centre, but has also been committed to wine and viticulture for centuries. The castle also includes the "Episcopal Wine Cellar Seggau" established here. From 2007 to 2019, the vineyards were managed on a leasehold basis by the Polz Erich & Walter W inery; from 2020, this will be taken over by the Landesweingut Silberberg. The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards in the Großlage Sausal with the single vineyards Einöd and Kainberg. They are planted with the white wine varieties Welschriesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Gelber Muskateller and Traminer, as well as the red wine variety Zweigelt. The vineyards are cultivated in a natural, environmentally friendly way. The product range also includes a mass wine. The 300-year-old wine cellar, 75 metres long and 8.5 metres high, is one of the largest and oldest in Europe. Wine tastings are held here regularly under the title "In Vino Veritas".
