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.

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.
