With around 350 hectares of vineyards, the largest wine-growing municipality in Styria in the wine-growing region of southern Styria. It consists of the cadastral municipalities of Eckberg, Gamlitz (from the Slavic Gomilnitz = hill), Grubtal, Kranach, Labitschberg, Sernau and Steinbach. Of 390 agricultural holdings, 230 are engaged in viticulture; the municipal coat of arms shows a bunch of grapes on a leaf. Gamlitz was awarded the title of "Europe's most beautiful flower village" in 1995. After the regional exhibition in 1990, the "Museum of Styrian Wine Culture" was established in Gamlitz Castle, which was first mentioned in the 12th century. Here one can obtain comprehensive information about wine and wine culture and a historical overview of Styrian viticulture.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
