Wine-growing municipality in the district of Bad-Radkersburg in the Austrian wine-growing region of Vulkanland Steiermark in the province of Styria, which is called the "pearl of south-eastern Styrian wine country". A document proves that viticulture has existed in Klöch since 1444, stating that Knight Perenhart von Klech was heavily in debt to a creditor from Radkersburg and had therefore mortgaged his vineyards. The knight died without having paid his debts and a Radkersburg judge certified the seizure of the vineyards to "Klechperg and Hohenwarth". In 1965 the cadastral communities of Klöch, Deutsch-Haseldorf, Gruisla, Pölten and Klöchberg (Hürtherberg and Röhrl) were merged to form the large community of Klöch, which then received the special status of market law in 1989.
